Sandy Hook -- Second Anniversary

Today is the 2nd anniversary of the Sandy Hook School shooting. Pictured here is one of the children who died on that terrible day -- 6 year old Caroline Previdi. Caroline's life is an inspiration to me because of her generosity to others and her recognition of God's blessings in her life. She would save her money all year and empty her piggybank just before Christmas to buy presents for children whose families couldn't afford them. Whenever someone said something was "lucky," she would correct them, saying, "We aren't lucky, we are BLESSED!" I think there's a close connection between gratitude and generosity, and one of my Christmas wishes is that I can grow in both. Thank you for your short life and powerful example, Caroline.
