Found this today on Yahoo and had to post it. This story about Dion Thomas who lost her mother in the Oklahoma City bombing and the grief and soul searching she had to do in the aftermath. She drifted in and out while she tried to find her way after the loss of her mother. Her grades once in the A's and B's, slipped to D's and F's as she struggled to cope.
She eventually went into the Army and found stability and purpose. Today she is a college graduate working on getting an advanced degree in speech pathology. Sometimes we have to find the good in the world so we are not overwhelmed with the negative.
Dion's grandmother put it simply; "Out of evil there is good...and she found some good."
