How to help victims in Aurora, Milwaukee, Syria, Myanmar, Palestine and ways to deal with tragedy and loss

In the past few weeks many innocent lives have been lost, my prayers and thoughts go out to all of the victims and their families. The best thing that we can do at this time is to try to do what we can to help any way we can.  If we can give money let’s give money if we cannot give money then let’s get the word out to let others know how they can help.

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. -Martin Luther King, Jr.

Let’s also remember that as the quote says the only way to drive out hate is with love, so let’s try to find ways throughout our daily lives to spread love!
