Tragedy is sad. There were lives lost that day, a judge, a little girl. But tragedy also gives birth to miracles. Gabby Giffords is doing amazingly well and her recovery has been a miracle.
I am particularly proud of my community. My hometown of Tucson, Arizona. The people of this community have lifted the victims and their families in prayer, gathered at the memorials left by thousands, and wished for peace and healing.
The kids and I visited one of the memorials. The memorial at Safeway, the location of the shooting.
I am sad but I am proud. This is our home. I'm proud of this home.
Know what else I'm proud of?
And know what's even cooler? Kindness is spreading! No, really, kindness is spreading to Denver, Colorado this summer. My dear friend Jenny and her gang are going to spread Ben's Bells kindness like nobody's business. Be still my heart, I just cannot wait!
Know what else I'm proud of...you guessed it!
(Guess he's decided to finally start working on closing his mouth! We're getting there!)
Yes, life is terribly fragile. So appreciate it. Hold it. Love it in all of it's forms.
Hope Springs Eternal.
