Room For Grace
“Room for Grace is a heart-warming story about the power of compassion and acceptance. Although intended for young people, this tale will resonate with all ages, since its message is too seldom heard.
The narrator is a young girl who is forced by her mother to share her world with Grace, an unkempt and scruffy stranger her own age who needs temporary shelter. She hates the thought of having Grace for a roommate and having to drag her along with her to school.
Once in school, her actions make it clear to Grace that she is unwanted and unwelcome. Grace is secluded, not only from her but from her classmates, who quickly pick up on her disdain for her new friend.
Then, she has a moment of insight. She experiences Grace’s pain and suffering and her own indifference and hostility. As empathy replaces contempt, she sees Grace, not as a stranger, but as another human being. She is open now to Grace’s corresponding motions of comfort and friendship.
The walls of reservation and resentment have been knocked down upon the commonality of their humanity.”
