Be Kinder Than Necessary...

It's hard to imagine that kind of pain, especially on a beautiful day like today...

This morning, I found out that the 11-year-old son of a friend of a friend, committed suicide last night. Why? Because some of his classmates were bullying him. It breaks my heart to know that such a young child felt so beaten down, that he thought the only way to feel better was to end his life.

I pray that we are able to instill enough love, faith and strength in Matty, so that he never ever carries that kind of burden; that he'll always know that no matter how badly he feels, things will always look up.

And I pray we know how to raise a boy who will always be kinder than necessary.

"Be kinder than necessary, because everyone you meet is fighting some sort of battle."
