Mercy. Compassion. Forgiveness. Do You have any to give?

Mercy. Compassion. Forgiveness. Do You have any to give?

What do these words mean to you?
Anything?
Perhaps you will read the name of this blog - AmericanCriminal, and quickly move on to another destination.
Or perhaps you will tell yourself, "Criminals? They don't deserve anything from me!"
And maybe you're right.
However, let's agree they deserve everything they get, and nothing from you.
What about their victims?
Or rather, the indirect victims of their crime,
often the most overlooked.... the children they leave behind.
What do these young ones deserve?
Anything?
Mercy?
Compassion?
Forgiveness for being born to criminal parents?
Could You be the one to give them something?
Anything?
You may never return to read this blog, so I will ask you to do one thing...
seek out Angel Tree, and give something.
Anything.
Give to the indirect victims of crime, the children.
Don't just think about it. Do it.
Today. And next year.
Plan on helping reduce a little suffering in the world.
Give compassion. Now.
Show mercy. Now.
Will You forgive the criminals enough to help their children?
