I haven’t posted anything on the tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut because I am at a loss for what to say. No words I can put together will bring those precious children, teachers and administrators back. I can sympathize with the families’ pain and imagine what they are going through, but I don’t know exactly the emotions they are experiencing. Just imagining their pain brings tears to my eyes. I sure hope I never have to go through something like that.

But through this tragedy, greatness can develop. We can turn this nation, this world, around. As I have said before, all we need is love and grace. We never know what people are going through so we shouldn’t judge them; we should just love them through their hurt and problems.

I was so happy when I read that NBC News reporter Ann Curry put a call out on twitter asking people to commit to 26 acts of kindness to honor the people who lost their lives in Newtown. (Read her article here) So I’m putting Ann’s call to action here on Pursuit of Pink, asking my lovely readers to do the same thing. Let’s perform random acts of kindness throughout our days and work to change this world. The world needs more love and less hatred.

Your random act of kindness can be anything, even something as simple as making eye contact with someone when you pass them on the street and wishing them a nice day. Whatever you feel led to do.
There is even a buzzfeed that was created to track the tweets about the acts of kindness, check it out here. Maybe the link will inspire you.

Let’s show this world that we can love and we can love complete strangers with our whole hearts. Thanks for being amazing readers. Thanks for your support! Now let’s support others in our daily lives.

Also, I'm over at The Chiffon Diary joining some other fab bloggers to give away some awesome prizes in honor of Nicholl's birthday. Perhaps you can enter that giveaway and if you win, gift the prize to someone. Now that's a random act of kindness! Go check out the giveaway here.


Thanks for stopping by! I love hearing from you.
