Jenny Matlock..."off on my tangent.
Did you hear about the seven year old Texas boy in Pflugerville, Texas? He definitely warmed my heart at a time when the world seemed so full of hate.
A mosque in his small Texas town was found vandalized when community members arrived for morning prayer. Feces were smeared on the sidewalk and torn pages of the Quran were thrown on the ground. As the little boy's mother said, "It's disgusting, it's gross. It doesn't matter what you believe, what I believe, or anybody believes, all faith is important."
She explained to her son what had happened in terms he could understand. She told him how someone had spread poop on a Muslim "church" and it was an awful thing to do. She explained that every body's churches are important. Little Jack understood and wanted to help. He had been saving for an iPad and had almost $20 in his piggy bank, but decided he would donate his money to help. He took it to the mosque and gave it to one of the mosque board members.

A Muslim human rights lawyer who was moved by this story sent Jack an iPad on behalf of the Muslim community. That kind gesture also warmed my heart.
