Another School Shooting

February 28th, 2012

2-28-12The school shooting in Chardon, Ohio was just 10 miles from my former home. This is another senseless tragedy we will watch as it is played out in newspapers and televisions across the nation. The images are frighteningly similar from one event to another. Time and time again we are witness to these events and wonder, why? and how? Why are so many of these shootings taking place? How can an individual take another’s life with such total disregard? To me, there is a simple answer to both of these questions, but it takes a long term commitment to that simple answer.
It is easy to be kind. Kindness is something you can adopt in your life as if it was second nature. This innate characteristic should should be as if it was part of the DNA of everyone. A lifetime goal of kindness is the commitment, a lifetime goal of One Million Acts Of Kindness.
To the families of the victims, the people of Chardon and anyone affected by this tragedy, you are in my thoughts and prayers.
