I wonder…

I have a particular favorite book, PAY IT FORWARD. Maybe you know the story. A boy’s given an assignment to find a way to change the world. He begins a project to help three people , with the intent that they should each help three people, and so on. He executes on his part of the plan, and generates a response on a level he’d never imagined. Then, after receiving an award from the President, he is killed trying to protect a stranger.

His influence, and his project, explodes as people all over the world commit to pick up the torch – to carry his sacrifice forward. Fundamental change happens.

I wonder, looking at things like #26Acts, if perhaps we are coming, because of Newtown, to a change on that level.

    I thought the same thing, Lydia. Newtown has already prompted so much goodness and light. What is it about us, that requires such challenging circumstances to prompt evolved behavior? We humans are an oddity!
    My goal? Illuminate the darkness. Always. Dash it away.

    I thought we were coming to a change, too, Lydia. We still can — and will.
