The Daily Acts of Generosity, Gratitude

In an instant we can lose loved ones to an unexpected tragedy. Imagine the loss of two of your children in one accident, and that the same time you lose the rental agreement on your family home.

This happened in my community, and it happens in communities every where.  This is when we can see the beauty of so many people who come together to not only bring comfort to the survivors, but real generosity.

Funerary costs for the mother who lost her children were far beyond her reach.  Fundraising efforts began immediately.  I witnessed two elements of light grow with this heartbreaking event: Generosity and Gratitude.

It happens every day.  It happens in every town.  It happens in every country.
