Make No Mistake – Whether Foreign or Domestic, the Boston Marathon Attack Was Terrorism

I am sitting here trying to make sense of the events of the last 24 hours and just like 9/11, I am struggling to understand, as are most of us.

Scotty McCreery Helps Fight Hunger With New PSA for ‘Peanut Butter & Jam Slam’ Food Drive Program

When I met Scotty McCreery, I was surprised to find him to be as genuine as he was on American Idol. I guess I expected him to be a little more full of himself considering all the attention he was getting at the time. But after meeting his family, I knew the reason he was able to stay so grounded. I have a felling that no matter how big he gets, he will always be an awesome and giving person. He proves my theory in a new PSA.

Leslie Unleashes On Herself When Her Son Has to Remind Her About the Importance of Giving to Others

I pride myself on the kind hearts of my children. While raising them, I ALWAYS tried to instill a sense of empathy toward others. I am happy to say they are all very giving and nonjudgmental individuals. I really want them to have a 'What would Jesus do?' mentality. In our world today, it's hard to teach that kind of love. But, that's not going to stop me. And, it shouldn't stop you either.

When I saw this video, I was outraged!! And YOU will be too. But, after we clench our fists in anger, grit our teeth and shake our head, we must stand back and remember to teach love.
