For what fuels our hope. My heart, like yours I’m sure, sinks every time a senseless, deadly act happens. Today it aches for those lost, and those who lost a loved one at the hands of this latest madman. Ugh, these things just chip away at my hope for a better world. But, this evil we saw on Sunday was confronted by the best of humanity, heroically. And there’s no better fuel for hope than that.
For the best of humanity, and for every second of every day that God protects us, I am thankful.
What are you thankful for today?
“Heroes may not be braver than anyone else. They’re just braver 5 minutes longer.”
“When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it–always.”
“Bran thought about it. ‘Can a man still be brave if he’s afraid?’ ‘That is the only time a man can be brave,’ his father told him.”
-George R.R. Martin, Game of Thrones
