turn it off
an incomprehensible tragedy happened today. children and teachers murdered at school. it’s stunning, it’s horrifying, it makes us angry, it makes us sad. this is our world, our children’s world. we don’t understand why. we want a scapegoat – someone or something to blame (gun control, the media, etc etc).
the best thing any of us can do today is turn off the TV, get off twitter and facebook. stop watching and commenting on the wreck. spend our time and energy connecting with the people around us. by giving our attention to negativity and tragedy we foster more of it. we nurse it. we give it power. i’mma stop yammering about this now and go back into the world and be a positive human being.
