I haven’t intended to be silent around here for the last two weeks. Truth be told, the December season is busy. Just as it probably is for most of you.

I’m pouring my heart out today and linking with Shell at Things I Can’t Say.

And with the recent events at Sandy Hook Elementry school in Newtown, CT every time I’ve come to this space to write, I’m really left speechless. I am sad, confused, and at times full of rage.

But I’m also convicted.

What if everyone was a friend to every person they knew? What if they smiled and said a kind word to every stranger they met?  What if they dropped the drama and just got involved with each other? What would happen if we were good neighbors to each other and shared with those in need? What if we had more social and less social media? What if we said enough is enough?

What would happen to our world? There would be more community. More greatness. More learning. More respect. More dialogue. More.

I’ve decided that I will be more.

And it will change my world.

Will you join me?
