When Columbine happened I had this sick feeling. I think everyone in the civilized world did. I had that feeling again tonight as I read this story on Yahoo! of a man here in California who shot his entire family in their home and then himself. What is going on? I keep asking myself.
Are you as sensitive about these things as I am? Do you want things to get better? It may take work. We as creative possibility thinkers of our time have to reach out more. We need to embrace one another and show interest in the dreams and hopes of those in our circle. This mass murder reported in the news is nothing new. I have heard about things like this for years, long since Columbine.
We need to exemplify caring in our workplace and in our families. There is no social program that will fix our society, it has to be one to one individual to individual. Show you care for others today. I won’t sit here and tell you there will be a return on your investment. Of course there might. But do it because it’s the right thing to do, not because you’ll get something back.
When I imagine that other people like you are showing caring in this world, I sleep better at night.
