Agree or Disagree: Blessed are those who are insulted

This title comes from a saying from Jesus who says "Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me." Matt 5:11. I'm sure we have all felt the sting of being insulted. I know I have on many levels. But there is a story going around that I wanted to share.

The first part of this, I must warn you, will be uncomfortable it is 68 year old Karen Huff Klein who was being insulted by some schools kids from New York.

As uncomfortable and angry as it is too watch, there is a powerful reaction. The video going viral has caused people to step in. Someone decided to start fund to help her out. It's a website called Indiegogo. At the point of this article the fund was at $185,000.

In an interview today on CTV Newsnet,  it has been reported that the fund has gone up over $300,000. That shows me there is some great human beings out there.

Back to being insulted. I know first hand what it's like. Including a few times on the way home on a school bus. I also witnessed a friend of mine who drove a school bus deal with it as well. It's not fun, and it does not feel "blessed".

But what can be a blessing is the type of people that come around you. And the type of person you can become.
