Toot toooot! This morning my family participated for our third time in the annual St. Charles Children's Home 5K road race at the Pease Tradeport. My mother and husband walked while my father and I ran.
If you're not from NH chances are you probably haven't heard of the "Running Nuns". St. Charles Children's Home in Rochester, NH is staffed by the Daughters of Mary Mother of Healing Love and accepts children who have been removed from their family by court order and are under the protection of the Division of Welfare. The grief and anger flowing from a troubled past tends to erupt in disruptive and sometimes violent behavior in these children.
