We all heard about this recent tragedy, and the disaster it was. I know a lot of people have had personal connections to this tragedy. I know some have been filled with compassion, while others with confusion, and chaos. The difference, our eternal perspectives.
In a talk given by Larry Richman, he states "The trials of this life will ultimately lead to joy if we patiently trust in God’s plan and discover how to use adversity to grow stronger." I know that is what has happened in my life as I have seen trials as a chance to grow stronger. We can (and should!) be sad for these people, and we need to do all we can to help them. But don't be weighed down by the negatives. Look for the positive in all situations.

See if we can't turn this earth shattering disaster, into a humanity uniting opportunity.
