We must dig deeper.
There is a saying that when all is at its darkest we may glimpse the light of the stars.
We have to keep the flame of hope alive to honour the memory of the children who lost their life. For them, we must fan the flames of all that is beautiful, good & hopeful in the world.
How? We must develop resilience (both in ourselves and our children).
May we all do one thing today to make the world a better place for children.
I always advocate kindness, but this is also a time to show your outrage to anyone in the media who is such a heartless numbskull that they're still in a community where they DO NOT BELONG.
I'd also like to share a link to a childhood story about how a young girl felt about video cameras in her face & strangers with microphones asking stupid questions.
Please read Kim's story here.
