Mother’s Day

Today is Mother’s Day.

Happy Mother's Day!

Today I am thinking about Mindy Corporon.

Mrs. Corporon recently lost not only her father, but also her son in a horrific and senseless attack on a Jewish Community Center in Kansas.

Her father, Dr. William Corporon, was a respected medical doctor. Her son, Reat Griffin Underwood, was just 14. He was a Boy Scout who had completed 22 merit badges and was working to become an Eagle Scout. Reat, a high school freshman,  was a bright student who was on the school debate team and loved to sing and act.

He was, in short, the kind of son everyone would love to have.

Her loss I cannot even begin to comprehend.

Today I am thinking about Mindy Corporon because of her strength and bravery, but most of all her faith.

If you have not watched the amazing testimony Mrs. Corporon gave in the days following the tragedy it is well worth your time.

“You know you have to reach to God; you have to reach to your friends and search your soul and that’s what it’s about. It’s about us who are living and it’s about loving and caring for one another.” ~ Mindy Corporon

Happy Mother's Day to you! I agree iwth Lori, what a broken world we live in. Only God's love will save us. I am always stunned by violence. Senseless. Always such beautiful lives lost that have everything to live for, everything to give and everything to make a difference. My heart is heavy for these losses and I pray. Hugs, Anne

I had not heard this story, but one thing is clear (I watched another video after seeing this one)....Mindy epitomizes the strength that is such a unique gift to a mother. I could only hope I could stand with as much composure and conviction in a similar situation.
