One of our 3-year-old's favorite songs is John Lennon's "Instant Karma" which she has memorized just about word for word.
I think we have all hoped at one point or another that Karma is a real force and that those who deserve it the most, for better or for worse, experience it sooner than later.
We would like to see good deeds rewarded instantly--as well as BAD deeds punished just as quickly.
A story in the news caught my attention and brought to mind the whole Karma thing.
A young girl and her friend ventured into their first entrepreneurial adventure by opening a lemonade stand in the neighborhood.
The Georgia 7th grader was robbed of $130 in a jar by a 20 something couple who pulled up and took their money.
BAD KARMA to steal from a kid's lemonade stand.
WORSE KARMA? The girl was raising money for her cousin who suffers from an intestinal disorder.
The good news in all of this is that the female in the robber duo was left behind at the scene by her compassionate cohort. The money will be recovered and even MORE money will be raised.
That is the good Karma you could say.
But as for the robbers?
I wouldn't want to be them. There are fewer robberies as low as what they committed.
And the Universe doesn't forget.
