The Good News - All Lives Matter!
We each help where we can.

The world seems to be filled with pain and suffering at times, overwhelming to our hearts and sense. But there are also many instances of huge and generous helping acts of both loved ones and strangers to help us through when we need it most.
Such is the case of Amanda Kofoed, a young woman diagnosed with Classical Hodgkins Lymphoma (a type of blood cancer) and that had progressed to stage 3 in 2016. The following video was published in late 2016 of a benefit held for Amanda and her family, to help raise funds for her treatment and to help with related family expenses.
This video is shared here, not so much to help raise funds, but rather to raise awareness of who we can be as people. Each of us can reach out to help one another.
If you so desire, you can be made more aware of Amanda and her situation in the following links. And if you care to help her/them, I am sure they would appreciate it.
An article about Amanda and her family from May, 2017 can be found here.
Another website dedicated to the mutual helping and sharing of kindness with other is Caring Bridge, and Amanda's page on that site is to be found here.
There are many ways for you to reach out and help someone, anyone. Just look around...
Paul Hayden is a Christian believer, and an American patriot, necessarily in that order. He is a student of the Bible, and is avidly interested in our role in the context of history, as understood through the heart and eyes of faith. Paul has lived and traveled somewhat widely, and now lives in the heartland of the U.S. (central Illinois), with his wife Donna - they have five grown children.

"I was raised by a Christian minister, Kenneth Hayden, until his death when I was 10. Then my mom married a farmer. So I was raised in a very down-to-earth home. My faith has grown through the years, but both in conjunction with the institutional church and through small groups and individuals, including books as well as group settings, where deep, sincere faith is shared that aligns with Biblical truth."
