Practice Random Acts of Kindness…

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Realty Group

This past month has proven to be a devastating month, with just unspeakable cruelty to several young children in Colorado and Pennsylvania.  The whole thing has hit very close to home for myself and John from my team, with both tragedies affecting communities that are very familiar to us.

            As you may know, I moved to Mt. Airy from from Colorado a couple of years ago.  I moved my family here last summer.  We used to live in Bailey, Colorado, and my sons attended Platte Canyon High School, the school in Colorado that was attacked.  Bailey is a quiet little community, tucked away in the mountains.  It was a very pleasant and safe place to live and raise our children.  Because Bailey is a small community, we know many of the people who were affected by this tragedy.  My third son would have been a junior at Platte Canyon this year, and he was a friend of many of the children who were directly involved.  He knew Emily Keyes, the young girl who was killed by the gunman.

Emily’s family has asked people to practice random acts of kindness in her honor.  We would like to encourage you to practice random acts of kindness this month, in memory of all the innocent children who lost their lives in these tragedies.  Maybe our kindness will encourage others to be kind, and we can have a positive impact on the world.  And let’s take a lesson from the Amish community, which has been so quick to forgive the killer and his family.  Let’s practice forgiveness in our lives also. 

We truly appreciate your friendship and referrals.  Send me an eMail if you would like me to send you a copy of our Oct. Newsletter.  (I will need your mailing address!)

I'd love to add you to my referral list and contact you by e-mail.  However, AOL blocks mail from my server.  Is there another e-mail address????
