It's nice to see people still doing good in the world.
Even if it's just a small act, like a bake sale.
My heart goes out to all those in Japan and all those who have loved ones in Japan.
The stories, videos, and pictures that have been dominating the news are almost unbearable.
There are stories of heartache, stories of survival, and stories of hope.
But most of all, there are stories of people.
People just like you and me.
Only one day they found their lives turned upside down.
One day, they lost the stability in their lives.
And the whole world watched it happen.
We watched lives and memories being swept away.
A tragedy is a tragedy and this occurrence easily fits that definition.
But there is always good that comes from these things.
It amazes me how quickly people respond to disasters.
Thank you for all those individuals and organizations that have sacrificed their time and been so quick to respond and help any and everyone in need.
Isn't it kind of ironic that it often takes an event like this one to really unite us?
I say 'I love you' to those I love every day.
Because what if one day they weren't here anymore?
What if there was some freak accident and time was cut short?
Because it wouldn't just be their time that was cut short--
no, it would be my time as well.
My time with them would no longer exist.
Remember to say 'I love you' and 'thank you.'
Because maybe one day you won't be able to.
And that would be a tragedy.
Do something good for someone.
Help a random person, because you never know what they've gone through.
I've spent a lot of time being selfish and worrying about my own life,
and my own problems.
But it only takes one act of kindness--even from a stranger--to remind me what life is all about.
And when it comes down to it, life is about loving and doing good.
I hope you find ways to
show your love today.
