Week Three: May 26 - June 1, 2019

On May 12, 2019, The Community Compassion Walk began; we did not know what lay before us. We knew to start this journey was literally by the first step. There are many stories to reflect on, and as we know all too well, we will never eradicate unnatural deaths as it knows no boundaries.

We will, however, continue to talk and listen with compassion. We can make a difference, even if it is one person, because that one person, no matter their age, is someone's child.

As I look at the world differently now, everything and anything is accomplishable in steps, small, baby, or significant steps; it can be done! This realization is powerful in knowing that we can make a difference in one person's life.

As we journey along the highway, appreciating that we are setting an example for a grieving child, a family, or a community. We can teach a child that they have the power to make a difference with guidance and support. The children are hidden leaders in our communities, and when they have the opportunity to shine, they will shine bright. In a community, we have the leaders, we have the champions, and as we nurture them, they will grow, and they will be the stepping stones into a healthier tomorrow.
