Around the world, as we hear of  senseless, horrific tragedies our country stands together with great compassion, and illuminates good will. Just this weekend I read a quote by artist Mary Engelbreit, well known for her comforting words that always accompany her art work. She wrote, “Be a lamp, a lifeboat, a ladder.”  Gently remember, the light we shine in the darkness will save others, and our personal goodness on a daily basis will make a difference to those in our midst.
