Happiness and peace will come to earth only as the light of love and human compassion enter the souls of men.
~David O. McKay
I usually have a good shield when it comes to awful news coming in from the world. The images of this week, though, have been really hard to live with, and I’m not sure where I am yet on showing tragedies such as that of little Alan al-Kurdi and his family publicly. I can remember when my kids were that little and I also remember the hope and anticipation of coming to Canada as a kid. His parents wanted the same things for him and his brother as my parents wanted for us. I hope that the shock of what happened sparks some changes for the thousands of people who are affected. That our tunnel vision opens up for a bit, and translates into real help.
