This plaque hangs on a wall in a corner of our dining room.
I love the message, “People need loving the most when they deserve it the least,” and I believe it is often true. Many times what we see as “bad” behavior is a person’s reaction to pain, fear, frustration, insecurity or even loneliness. If we can see beyond the surface and offer some love, kindness and understanding I believe we have the potential to change lives for the better.
I have thought several times that I should move that plaque to a place where it is more prominently displayed, because even though the words are engrained in my mind, it is not in a location where others are likely to read it. Today I decided to do one better – share this message here, where it can reach those who might visit our home and many, many more.
