My six-year-old knows nothing about what happened in Newtown, Connecticut on Friday – none of my children do. But this morning she asked if she could take the pinch pot she is making in this picture to her teacher as a gift, and the timing felt inspired.
Friday’s news hit hard. That could, so easily, have been my daughter’s classroom. It was so beautiful to see an innocent child’s spontaneous generosity this morning.
Then, this evening, I came across this article – and the idea of doing (at least) 26 acts of kindness felt wonderful amid so much sorrow. We’re in – are you?
Also, check out this post from the Connecticut PTA for ideas of ways to help Newtown! I called our children’s librarian, and she was very happy to help me set up a snowflake-making session! Can you do the same?
