Keeping it Real...
Welcome! No matter how you found this, God knew you'd be here today. May you absorb the message He has for you. In 2011 I shared through my writing, today I've learned there is more to me than just writing. I have the energy and passion to share with others. Sometimes through Facebook live and others with my blog and most importantly, I've learned my passion to cook and bake is a vessel to share my writing and live presentations, while glorifying God in the process. I just needed to let go, and follow His lead.
Last Wednesday I had the opportunity to connect with future journalist on how to approach, communicate, and interact with families in the midst of, and following a traumatic event.
For the journalist, it is about getting the "story" while it is "hot" yet it is important to remember that for the family & friends they are interviewing...this is now their life.
Life changed in an instant and will never be the same again. While their "hot story" comes and goes, the effect of the event forever impacts the victims' surviving family and friends...and when the victim survives, one wrong and thoughtless question or statement may damage their mental health for days, weeks, months, and years.
This is why I accept Tammy Palmer's invitation to speak with her journalism classes. First and foremost, she is a journalist of character and integrity - she is a model of what good, true, and thoughtful news reporting should, and could be like daily. My prayer is that her students listen and truly hear the messages and lessons she teaches - she is a force for reporting the truth while respecting and honoring the victim, and those that love and care for them.
Thank you for remembering Heidi...
