Learning from Trials

I’ve seen this video floating all over facebook and hope you’ll take a minute to watch it, it offered me a lot of hope and inspiration.  It was created by the mother of Emilie Parker who was among those children killed in the Sandy Hook shooting.  While I cannot relate to losing a child after…
