Touch a Heart Tuesday
Today, August 30th is Touch a Heart Tuesday! In 1988, Lorraine Jara created this holiday to honor the memory of a man who tragically passed away. Two young men in Toms River, New Jersey flipped over in a rowboat. Two women in another boat, pulled the men out of the water and into their boat. Their boat was not motorized, and they did not have a radio. Two more boats passed by and did not stop to help. One boat yelled out that they could not be bothered. Lorraine was devastated after reading about this event that happened in her own hometown, she wanted to honor the man that passed. She decided to honor him with a day that recognizes and encourages kindness. We couldn’t agree more.
