Inspired to Help by Mike Opdyke 

We save our best for the worst.
We store kindness up like corn in a silo
Like it needs to be rationed

 

Let’s sprinkle it out a little more freely
so maybe we don’t
have to dump it all out at once so often.

When Innocent People are Hurt, Others are Inspired to Help
When Innocent People are Hurt, Others are Inspired to Help
