26 Acts of Kindness ( #26Acts )
I don't know. I do believe there is hope for a reunion someday, but that knowledge doesn't automatically make everything easier on day one.
Earlier this week I read a blog post on E Tells Tales that brought 26 Acts of Kindness to my attention. It's a movement in honor of the lives lost, and all it involves is a little kindness. Some participants have chosen to do 20 random acts of kindness in memory of the children who died. Others are doing 26 to include the adults. Still others chose to perform 27 acts for the shooter's mother. Some have chosen 28 to include the shooter himself.
Ann Curry started all this and it has since gone viral. She shares via her Twitter, and there's also a Facebook page.
My first act was sneaking this gift card into a woman's stroller while at the library (with a note about it). I actually chose 28 acts because everyone is entitled to forgiveness. Even if they never ask for it.
