On yesterday's post, Duncan commented, "You must be the first American I've come across in the last 24 hours who DIDN'T rejoice at the death of bin Laden! Refreshing!"
While I am not saddened by his death, I must say I had conversations with my teenagers yesterday about how odd it felt to me that everyone was celebrating the fact that we (the U.S.) killed someone. I know I'm usually the odd-man-out and a wishful-thinker, but anger and hatred and revenge do nothing to lift my spirit.
What does lift my spirit?
The fact that my neighbor didn't simply stop and put his mower away when he finished cutting his grass Monday night. Instead, he mowed the grass in our front yard as well. He didn't need to do that. But he wanted to be kind.
What lifts your spirit?
