So Much Good in the World

It always happens.  Catastrophic events always reveal the depth of goodness in average people.  This week after the devastating earthquake in Haiti, people, average people, have come out to aid in the relief effort.  They come from everywhere.  They do what they can to help, even if it seems so small in comparison to how big the need is.  Those who can't actually go to Haiti, which is most of us, help from home by raising money and gathering supplies to send.  And, at the very least, by praying for the well-being of the Haitian people.  By calling on a higher power to do the good that we cannot.  Average people can do so much good.

But it doesn't take a catastrophe.  On a much smaller scale, I have been coordinating the volunteers for the middle school winter dance this week.  I have been overwhelmed by the response of the parents in our community.  So many people want to help, in any way that they can.  People want to help others.  They want to do good and be good.  In a world where there is so much to fear and so much to worry about, it's nice to be reminded once in a while that we are, most of us, good people getting through it all together.

  1. Great post. I lived for two years in the Dominican Republic which is right next door to Haiti. I've seen first hand how completely unprepared they must have been for that quake, and have been praying for them everyday. Wish I could do more.
