Don't beat them, hug them!

Every so often you come across something that reminds you that no matter how bad things seem for you right now, it's worse for someone else.

This was one of those things for me. Driving down the road, in a hurry, on my way somewhere, busy busy, rush rush rush...

But them something catches your eye and curiosity takes over and in an instant you are reminded that your troubles are trivial in comparison.

This is a healing field display to commemorate children who have lost their lives as victims of child abuse.

Each of these white flags has a name of a child. It's a sobering moment to stand and see them, waving in the early morning breeze and know that somewhere is a grave with that child's name on it.

It makes me want to go home and hug these! TIGHT!
