Hello, Sunshine! Pray for Las Vegas.
This is what we need more of: LOVE, COMPASSION, and KINDNESS.
I woke up this morning angry at the news of the horrific shooting in Las Vegas. Las Vegas was my home for 2 years. Vegas was where I had my first big girl, fresh out of college job. It’s where I met my husband and my son’s birthplace. My Grandfather’s favorite place in the whole world was Vegas. If I still lived in Las Vegas, there is a high likelihood that I would have been at the Route 91 Harvest Festival.
ENOUGH. I’ve had enough with the hatred that flows through the veins of other humans. Where have we gone wrong where we accept such disgusting behavior as the norm?
I know that many people will go out and donate blood and give to charities to help those in need. But I think there are little things that we can do to put an end to the madness. Ask the cashier at the grocery store how his day is going. Buy the coffee for the customer behind you at Starbucks. Give a larger tip to those working in the service industry.
Be like ICU Grandpa. Provide love and support to those who are less fortunate than you. Your simple acts of kindness are what you want to be remembered for and what this world needs.
“They call him the ICU Grandpa. On Tuesdays, he visits the PICU to hold babies whose parents can’t be with them that day. On Thursdays, he makes rounds in the NICU,” the Facebook post states. His name is David Deutchman, and he’s been volunteering for more than a decade.
