2 Things You Can Do to Help Colorado Heal from its Tragic Summer:
#1: If you feel compelled to help the victims then take action. Send a card, send a prayer, send positive thoughts, send a contribution. Organize a fund raiser, organize a meditation group. There is no wrong way to put lovingkindness out into the world. And no gesture is too small to make a difference.
Years ago during a personal tragedy, an employee at a photocopy store overheard me discussing my heartbreaking circumstances while I waited for my copies to be made. Once she finished making my copies she announced that she wouldn’t be charging me anything. ”It’s the least I can do in light of what you’re going through.”
Was her $30 generosity enough to change my life? No. But her lovingkindness made it easier to get through one more day. More importantly, it was a gentle reminder that I was surrounded by support. Knowing that we are not alone is always healing, no matter what we’ve been through.
