"Evidence of love" is the other headline of the day

Originally appeared on spirituality.com

Many of my son's friends, who have been in and out of our house over the years, are students at Virginia Tech. I bow my head in gratitude that they are safe, and wrap them each in the love that fills my heart at this time. I also reach out with love and compassion to the families and friends of those who were injured or killed. Each of those students is precious and loved.

Irresistibly, my thought cherishes mental snapshots of these young friends. One drove a snowplow through snowy nights while still in high school, another liked to invent crazy contraptions, and others were in theater. Before my son Daniel, and one of his friends, David, could drive, I took these two fellows on the camping trips they wanted to experience.

We'd love to hear from you!
