Tornadoes. Oklahoma. Other people count. A lesson in humanity.
My heart is heavy.
I can't even imagine. I couldn't even begin to put myself in their shoes. Shoes? Do they even have any this morning?
But yet...in the aftermath of devastation...I sit back and I see there is beauty in humanity
There is HOPE.
There are plenty of organizations and groups that are gathering together to offer support. If you know of any of them, find out what they need...whether that be items, or money or volunteers.
If you don't know who to connect with go to Redcross.org. They need our help. They are already there in place with shelters. They are bringing food and supplies in all day today.
You can donate on the website or call 1.800.REDCROSS or even easier text REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.
And really, what is $10? Your lunch? A couple Starbucks? Step out of your comfort zone, if only for a moment, and put yourself in their place.
I believe we are called to come alongside those in need in whatever way we can. We need to take action. We need to show our children what it means to care for others.
And we do.
This is when the best of humanity steps forward. This is when I regain my faith in people. This is when love rules.
I believe it's being the "hands and feet of Jesus". Jesus.
The one who walked the earth and just.loved.people.
He is the perfect example. He exhausted himself helping others.
I won't exhaust myself texting in $10. In fact. It probably won't affect me at all. But it is taking action. It's something.
Will you shine as the best of humanity today?
