December is the time of year where many charities receive a large portion of their donations. We are all familiar with the red Salvation Army kettles where for years in my hometown of Chicago received a surprise gold coin donation. Businesses have local food drives to fill food bank shelves. Homeless shelters and church kitchens work to feed the homeless and needy on Christmas Day.
In addition to seasonal giving throughout the year people give of time and talents. When natural disasters occur here in the United States and abroad we as humans come together to help each other. And when human generated tragedies occur like that on Friday in Newtown, CT the human spirit rises to amazing heights of kindness. During this time of year and this week with tragedy out West and Northeast we must remember that there truly is good in the world.
PaisleyPerspective along with people around the world are praying for those Connecticut families who are grieving after an unimaginable horror. We sincerely send our condolences to the loved ones of the victims from the Newtown, CT tragedy. We know there are no words that can take away the pain you are facing.
