Like so many people around the country, I was horrified to hear of the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary. It still breaks my heart thinking of the 26 innocent lives that were taken that day, especially those beautiful children.
On Friday, I saw that Mindy, one of my close friends, was participating in something called "26 Acts of Kindness" in honor of the Sandy Hook Elementary School victims. At the time, I didn't know exactly what it was, but after searching online, I knew I wanted to participate.
26 Acts of Kindness, is an idea that journalist Ann Curry suggested after asking herself what she could do for the victims. The answer she came up with was performing 26 acts of kindness for others, one kind act for each life that was taken that day.
She tweeted this idea a little over a week ago, and has had an unbelievable response. People everywhere are getting involved to honor these precious victims. Read about Ann's proposal here.
I hope you will consider doing the 26 Acts of Kindness as well. There's no right or wrong way to do it, just do something nice for someone else, and let them know it was in honor of a victim of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.
Here are 3 of Mindy's 26 acts:
For my #26acts, I decided to write a message on large index cards explaining what I was doing and why. Each one has the name of a victim and their age, so the recipient knows that act was in honor of a particular person.
What better way to honor these 26 victims than to do something nice for someone else?
Have you heard of 26 Acts of Kindness?
As always, Have a Sweet Day!
