Death is a hard thing to deal with, and the loss of a parent is one of the hardest of all to go through. It’s a time when family becomes one of the most important things to hold on to, but at the same time, they only remind you of the one that you lost. For younger children, this can be a devastating and traumatic experience that follows them throughout the rest of their lives, and when it comes down to it, they might be thinking about putting an end to…well, everything. This brave girl took to social media and made a shocking confession that touched millions of people around the world.
In everyday situations, these moments might touch us forever and change our lives, but no one will ever know about it. If you do a good deed, you might not know how much you might have changed that one person’s life. To Megan, “it’s just an umbrella, no big deal!” But to this one girl who was contemplating ending her life due to the intensity of the pain, it was much more than “just an umbrella.” It was a lifeline.
Simple good deeds can come in simple gestures, a spontaneous decision, or even something as small as a quick smile. When you go about your days, look for those opportunities to share kindness because you never know who may be needing it the most.
