Your God stole my God’s identity and I bet he’s been buying pieces of Heaven on eBay. The next time you bend your knees, the next time you bow your head, I want you to tell your God… that my God is looking for him."

"When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’ To this day, especially in times of disaster, I remember my mother’s words and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers — so many caring people in this world."
