Hoped to wake up this morning with some news regarding what happened, not much, just a lot of conjecture..
One issue that really pissed me off was during one of the news conferences was an azzclown who asked Davis.. "Do you think that this is another government effort to take away our rights(sic)??", thank God Davis moved on to the next question.
“We like to say that dependability is more important than ability,” Bill Belichickism....
I understand where you're coming from, PR....but I tend to be overwhelmed at the goodness and utter bravery of people when tragedy strikes...and that brings me to tears much faster and easier.
I see people who are rightly terrified - and whose lives are in danger - but some of them are not leaving, they are staying, and they are helping....at great risk to themselves.
Look for them, they are always there.
They are the teacher at Newtown who wrapped her body around her autistic student whose only comfort when frightened was to be held tightly.
They are the social worker at Newtown who marched out into the hallway to confront the shooter - knowing he had a gun and she did not.
They are the young men at the Marathon today who tore off their tee-shirts to staunch the bleeding belly wound of a stranger.
They are the chef who took off his apron and used it to tie off an arterial spurt in a stranger's leg.
They are all the strangers who stay behind to comfort and aid other strangers.
They ask nothing, they give everything.
Whenever you think there is no hope - there you find the most hope.
Life will always continue, goodness will always triumph over evil - all you have to do is look for it.
Nice, thoughtful post...thank you!
I am not able to focus upon one aspect (the good) of a tragedy....it see and feel it all. My therapy and my lifeline is to try to let it all go through prayer and by not watching 24/7 telecasts for days on end.
My goal today is to do what I do each day with an extra dose or two of God's help. I can not focus on hatred or anger although I'd find it easy....it will wear me down very quickly.
And regarding the people you mentioned....they are hero's in my book as well.
