It’s truly amazing to me how much the Cameron Effect has impacted my life. When parents can turn a senseless tragedy into something so positive it becomes inspirational and takes on a life of it’s own. I have participated in this cause from the beginning. Hardly a day goes by that I don’t think about what I can do to make a difference in someone else’s life. I feel that Cameron’s spirit is at work in myself and others, and it moves me to try everyday to make the world a better place, one act of kindness at a time. I’m so glad to hear that this movement is growing each year. I hope that one day it will be a nationally recognized event. In the mean time, I will continue to tell people about this wonderful cause and do my best to inspire others to participate. Thank you to the Freeman family for this wonderful gift. -Marilyn
Oh Marilyn, I am so very thankful for your post and learning how this movement has helped someone. Because so many recipients of the Cameron Effect kindnesses (from other people) were in such need, and I was/am in such a tender place emotionally, I could more easy lock into the grief of their desperate situation rather than the joy of receiving the compassion. So I told myself last year to set it aside. But, as you said, the Cameron Effect has developed a life of its own and a few days later, I got a call from Positivity Matters and they wanted my permission/assistance to make the Cameron Effect grow. I am now so glad I answered “Yes”!
Marilyn, I appreciate your words of encouragement. -Shelley
