Remembering the Right Way

I know from unique life circumstances that it can be very easy to hold onto negatives with the best of intentions. The "never forget" mantra that is overwhelmingly used on this date can and does lead in such a direction easily. Let us truly never forget the words of Christ in Matthew 5:43-45.

You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.

Today is a great day to turn the negative into positive by doing charity work or making a healthy donation to Pakistan flood relief or a similar cause.
