Remember the bigger picture: Show compassion to the world

Many people are superstitious about Friday the 13th, and sadly, this year the feelings of unease were grounded. In at least six coordinated attacks around Paris, terrorists took hostages at a concert, shot patrons at several restaurants and detonated suicide bombs at many locations around the city.

“Bethany, I have to tell you something. The doctor called and my tests came back. I have cancer, but it’ll be okay.” Those weren’t the words I expected to hear when my little sister Becca knocked on the door of my res hall room last March, but I knew the results would be coming eventually.

“There are no great limits to growth because there are no limits of human intelligence, imagination and wonder.” —Ronald Reagan. Habits are necessary.
