The holidays are a time to reflect on life, take account of what you’re grateful for, and celebrate the people around us. This year the story of a young girl named Safyre Terry took quickly spread around the world, creating an opportunity to show one special little girl how wonderful people can be sometimes.
This is Safyre. In 2013, she suffered burns over 75 percent of her body and lost her family in an unsolved arson fire. She now lives with her aunt in Schenectady, NY, and like every other little kid loves Christmas.
This year her aunt brought home a Christmas card tree to hold the holiday cards they got this year. Safyre was ecstatic, and couldn’t wait to fill the tree with cards. Her aunt said it might not happen because they only get a few cards every year, but she had an idea.
Safyre’s aunt put a message up on Facebook asking for help making the little girl’s Christmas wish come true. She asked that people send a few extra cards to the family this year. The internet had bigger plans. In a post on Facebook Safyre’s aunt updated the world on how things have gone. The results were incredible.
I really think I am dehydrated from crying so much… This is absolutely amazing, it takes my breath away. We, my family and I have been through so much darkness of this this world. Then to see the most powerful BEAUTY of the world. The world coming together to make Safyre’s wish come true is unfathomable. All along we knew God saved her for a reason, never in ours wild dreams, did we think she would move the hearts of many worldwide. Safyre is a living testimony, “no matter what, you can get through anything” as long as you BELIEVE in HOPE FAITH LOVE. Thank you doesn’t quite say enough for the graditude we have for all you caring and generosity. THANK YOU
