Kendall's World » 365 days of kendall project | by marie masse

::dear kendall::

i love you every day, but days like today i feel overwhelmed with how much i love you. today there was a tragedy in connecticut. lots of lives lost from gun violence – most of those lost were children. tonight i’m going to hug you a little tighter. i’m very grateful for you. i wish that i could protect you always and preserve your innocence. i wish i could hide all of the bad things in the world for you, because you deserve only a life of happiness, health, safety, love, & laughter. there have been many similar tragedies in the past, but soon they are brushed under the rug, nearly forgotten, & life goes on…. until it happens again and our entire nation stands still. i am just one person & can’t change the world, but i will keep praying that changes will be made & that our society perseveres.

i saw this on a photographer’s facebook fan page & couldn’t agree more…

“When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’ To this day, especially in times of disaster, I remember my mother’s words, and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers–so many caring people in this world.” -Fred Rogers
