Tomorrow marks the 12th anniversary of the Columbine High School Massacre. 

On April 20, 1999, in the small, suburban town of Littleton, Colorado, two high-school seniors, Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris, enacted an all-out assault on Columbine High School during the middle of the school day. The boys’ plan was to kill hundreds of their peers. With guns, knives, and a multitude of bombs, the two boys walked the hallways and killed. When the day was done, twelve students, one teacher, and the two murderers were dead. 

Remember the victims and survivors.

Change Your Words.

Recently, their was a poor man that, like many without a home, spent his days on the streets holding up a cardboard sign asking for change. He wasn’t able to see, and his sign read, “I’m blind. Please help.”

Unfortunately, very few took notice of his despair until one day a wise woman took his cardboard sign, turned it over to the other side, and wrote the same thing, but in a different way.

On that very day, the poor man collected more money than he ever thought possible. What did she write on the board? “It’s a beautiful day but I can’t see it.”

Maybe we should practice and apply this to our daily life too, poor or rich.
