another school shooting happened today and i’m just too upset to write a full blog.  it seems the policy makers don’t care one bit about youth.  how many more precious children need to die?  it’s a disgrace.   i’ve said it before, we have to care about our youth and partner with them to find solutions to these tragedies.   For more of my thoughts on this click on my blog post below from January 2013.

yeah i said it…you (and i) are the problem but also the solution.

things are looking real off base these days. bad news, violence, hatred and drama in the media and out on your block. we get mad, blame and lose hope.

but what i believe is these events are trying tell us something.  it’s going to keep happening if we don’t stop talking and begin to act.  make change happen by being the change.   just like times in your own personal life you may have something ‘bad’ happen only to realize down the line that the ‘negative’ was actually a blessing.  the lost job led you to start a business of your own, the break up helped you open your eyes to the person of your dreams, getting kicked off a team helped you find an even more exciting hobby. the silver lining; the ultimate buddy of optimism is always there for the taking.  but taking is required.

if we want to see the glass half full we’ve got to pick it up. things can get better but it’s up to you (and i). so what are you (we) gonna do?
