Armor And Shield

Sharing another wonderfully appropriate and well needed post from our friend, Colleen. May the light of kindness shine into all the recent heartbreak.

The Chatter Blog

For every calculated evil that exists or is enacted and broadcast, there are millions of kind and good spirited acts that are not broadcast.   But the kindness goes on.  There is no need to glorify it because the glory is inherent to the deed.   The expectation of us, as humans, is decency.

Though we are not surprised by evil acts…..

We would be fully crushed and devastated and struck down in our disbelief if the fully expected acts of love, generosity and kindness stopped.

Evil may get the news coverage and the media frenzy.

But love, compassion and kindness are the never wavering, always enduring heroes of humanity.

Most often  our good deeds exist quietly and in abundance.

Our goodness is our armor and shield.

And our power.

About The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap

The year 1895 was filled with memorable historical events: the Dreyfus Affair divided France; Booker T. Washington gave his Atlanta address; Richard Olney, United States Secretary of State, expanded the effects of the Monroe Doctrine in settling a boundary dispute between the United Kingdom and Venezuela; and Oscar Wilde was tried and convicted for "gross indecency" under Britian's recently passed law that made sex between males a criminal offense. When the news of Wilde's conviction went out over telegraphs worldwide, it threw a small Nevada town into chaos. This is the story of what happened when the lives of its citizens were impacted by the news of Oscar Wildes' imprisonment. It is chronicle of hatred and prejudice with all its unintended and devastating consequences, and how love and friendship bring strength and healing. Paulette Mahurin, the author, is a Nurse Practitioner who lives in Ojai, California with her husband Terry and their two dogs--- Max and Bella. She practices women's health in a rural clinic and writes in her spare time. All profits from her book are going to animal rescue, Santa Paula Animal Shelter, the first and only no-kill shelter in Ventura County, CA, where she lives. (see links below on Ventura County Star Article & Shelter) To find out more please go the The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap on facebook or Amazon or e-mail us at the gavatar addresses. Thank you.
