Finding Faith



These are my grandfather's hands; lifelong farmer.

If only more people's hands weren't more like his--strong, gentle, and kind.

The world might be a different place.

RIP - Virginia Tech victims.

I am still saddened.

90% of the world is a scry place.

You have to make the most of the other 10%.

I'm with This Eclectic Life: you can tell a lot by a person's hands.

I, too, am struck mightily by what has happened at Virginia Tech. I don't want to have to keep explaining these things to my kids.

Very sad! I've been in tears on and off since yesterday!

Sad indeed. And to know it could be MY children or grandchildren shot down senselessly scares me.

I, too, wish that more people had hands like your grandfather's for the world would indeed be a very different place then.

Go in peace.

Great picture, and a very powerful message. You are so correct. The world is getting crazier and crazier. I fear it will not get better.

What a lovely picture. I agree why can't there be more gentle people in this world. I don't get why people have to be so cruel.
