Our nation has a way of pulling together and inspiring positive change in our world in times of overwhelming grief. Last Friday, America was brought to its knees when 20 precious children and six brave educators lost their lives in a massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary school in Newtown, Conn. Never before have our country’s most innocent and most pure been victimized in such horrific acts. When tragedy reaches children, it seems to hit us at our core.
Following Friday’s tragedy, Americans are banding together in efforts to overcome evil with good. Some do so as a way to keep the victims of Sandy Hook from dying in vain. Some are motivated by the thought that we must show our children — and the rest of the world — that America is a nation of good people.
#26Acts is a movement of kindness birthed out of our excruciating pain and grief. It began as a question by NBC’s Ann Curry; a challenge to people across our nation to do one act of kindness in honor of each of the victims of the school shooting. It is an effort to show our support and help our fellow American with kind acts, no matter how small.
