The Caring Community

A recent vacation put us in the path of one of the major tornado outbreaks. Fortunately, the area we were staying in was spared major damage, but there were so many others in different locales who were severely impacted by dangerous weather. When we see the photographs and videos of the damage wrought by these record-breaking storms we have no way to even comprehend the extent of misery brought about by them. How do we bring about some sort of peace to ourselves and those affected in such times of destruction? There is no easy or satisfactory answer, but reaching out in any manner we can to give what help and comfort we can is an expression of our humanity...our caring concern...our acknowledgement that "there but for the grace of God.." We need to demonstrate our willingness to help, whether by volunteering, providing resources--financial or personal-- perhaps spiritual by keeping those affected in our hearts, minds, and thoughts/prayers. We need this not just for others...we need it for ourselves...we need to know and understand that we are, in fact, all affected when storms enter our lives...we are all together in our vulnerability...essentially, we need to know that we and others are there with us and/or those affected. By giving  and reaching out to connect and share what we can we are recognizing that we are also receiving and becoming part of the caring community. 

Peace to you this day. Peace.
