525,600 Minutes

Seasons of Love

525,600 minutes,
525,000 moments so dear.
525,600 minutes --
How do you measure, measure a year?
In daylights, in sunsets, in midnights, in cups of coffee.
In inches, in miles, in laughter, in strife.
In 525,600 minutes --
how do you measure a year in the life?
How about love? ...
Measure in love.
Seasons of love...

"525,600 minutes" is the title of Molly Hightower's blog, which she created to chronicle her year with Our Little Brothers and Sisters, a wonderful organization whose purpose is to care for orphaned and abandoned children in Latin America. Molly arrived in Haiti last June to help with the physical therapy of disabled children. She worked patiently under trying conditions for six months, but then, tragically, was caught in last week's earthquake. On Friday, her body was recovered from the wreckage of the Fr. Wasson Center in Pétionville.

Molly seems to have been a cheerful and compassionate young lady, a fragrant blossom in the garden of the Lord.

May the Lord of All forgive all her sins, and bless her, and raise her up on the last day.

What a song she picked to name her blog! "How can you measure the life of a woman? ... In truths that she learned, ... or the way that she died. ... Remember the love! Measure in love."

Molly's father wrote that this is one of the best articles written about his daughter.
