You can blame it on the Mayan’s, on the date, on Global Warming but no matter what I think you should treat December 21, 2012 as the end of one life and the beginning of another.
There have been horrible events that happened this year and the years before to you and to others all around the world. Whether it was devastation of a single loss of someone close, the devastating events of Sandy Hook in the US and similar travesties around the world, we each mourn our own personal grievances and ask ourselves why for everything that happens.
We can’t explain everything but now is the chance we all need to educate ourselves on how to make this world a better place. For the lives who’s world did end on a significant date we need to celebrate our own and ensure we do what matters. To love our family just a gram more, to understand who we are, to pay it forward to help a friend and stranger. Make sure people are aware of the resources that do exist for them.

And it’s easy to give people what they need even if they are half way around the world through World Vision and you can receive this way as well.
We all know how a tiny little think can lift our spirits and make our day so let’s start making the day of others and pay it forward to everyone has someone who cares.
Thanks for reading and giving,
