Earlier I told you about my friend who came by and brought me some books and listened to me ramble. His name is Paul, and he is an awesome guy. One of the things he and I discussed was compassion.
I’ve never been in jail. I’ve never been wrongly accused in any sort of big picture kind of way. I’ve been desperate, though, and I’ve been hopeless. I’ve wondered where the help I so desperately needed was going to come from. I’ve been scared, and I’ve felt like my world was ending. I’ve worried for my loved ones.
Like many of you I am thinking of Rarasaur tonight. Even if I have not known her as long or as well as many of you, I have an overwhelming sense of compassion for her. I wished I could do more to help. I decided that maybe I can play a very small part. I could at least try. So, I made a special piece, and I was thinking that I could make that into a badge.
Anyone who donates or sends a card or makes a phone call or a visit, anyone who sends well-wishes, positive energy, happy thoughts, or says a prayer can come and get the badge and display it. I think Rara would like it.
What do you think?
