Recent events- Hurricane Sandy and the Sandy Hook School shootings- are proof that Americans need to care more deeply for one another. Though I normally keep politics out of my blog, and I am an avowed compassionate Conservative, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s concept that It Takes a Village to raise our children rings with urgency today. “Am I my brother’s keeper?’ You bet. How else will we, members of our village, look ourselves in the mirror?
Enter Operation United Hearts; a group of bloggers helping a very special military family from Fort Lee, Virginia this Christmas… On November 19th of this year, a tragic fire broke out, taking the lives of a father and his two year old daughter, and the home and worldly belongings of another family; a single mom and soldier with 6 year old twins and a 3 year old. (Read more here about the Fort Lee community and how they have aided this displaced military family.)
