Look for the Helpers #prayforboston

Last night as pictures, posts and tweets of the Boston Marathon explosions filled my social media feeds, I came across a very inspiring article.

If you are losing hope in human nature, go out and watch a marathon.

Take the 5 minutes out of your morning to read it–it’s worth it.

It’s easy to look at a horrible event like the Boston Marathon explosions, and completely lose faith in our fellow companions. What terrible person could do such a thing–nonetheless, think up and plan such a thing?

But even in the midst of tragedy, there are signs all over the place that America is reaching out. Moving into action. Holding out a helping hand to those in need. Just check your facebook newsfeed. Prayers are being prayed. Blood drives are being set up. Donations are being sent. It gives me a renewed faith that shines through this dark cloud.

A light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. -John 1:5

Pray for Boston

I hope this post reminds you that there are still caring people in this world. Just look for the helpers.
