Over the past 15 years, terrorism has had many moments that grabbed headlines–moments that constantly convey devastation, mayhem, and death. We rightfully are aware of wars where millions of people are displaced, bombs are falling, women are kidnapped and sold as sex slaves, and children are dying. It’s beyond my comprehension, and I have no words to explain the evil that exists among men.
What I can tell you is there is hope. There are bright pockets of light in places you’d never imagine. Like the Lutheran Comfort Dogs. These mostly golden retrievers and their handlers volunteer to assist people in their hour of need. They are presently in Orlando, Florida, comforting the people affected by the latest god-less maniac.
There is hope in the world, and if you despair, there are people who can help you off the ledge. For those of us who have a hard time understanding where we fit in this sometimes awful world, I call on you to remember so many people love us. Here’s a link to get some help if it all seems too much.
