Many seats will be empty at tables during this holiday season, due to acts of terror, natural disasters, and loved ones who have passed on from sickness, disease, or the life was taken prematurely. Those who were injured may still be seated, but their lives were changed forever because of these horrific events. Nearly 1500 lives are represented and this number is multiplied many times over when we include family members and friends who are affected. Hopefully, this series will help us all get Beyond this Day.

About Rochelle

I am a native of Savannah GA. Raised in a 'religious' home... let's call me a P.K. (Preacher's Kid). Went to Church 3-4 times a week. Even so, I never saw Christ in the home. That's sad. I am also the founder and CEO of PICC, Inc. and SCHP (2 blogs representing the non-profits). Take a moment and browse through our content. I believe you will be encouraged and inspired by our columnists and contributors. By all means, visit my story (parts I, II, and III) at
