This latest school tragedy is war having a face. See, the majority of our wars are fought against abroad–there, in certain remote place where we never need to confront it since it is a fantasy to all of us. Not this time around. It’s in our face where we can’t escape the unimaginable horror of witnessing our kids die. Personally, i be aware of unthinkable discomfort that the parent never really wants to feel-losing a young child.

This recent Connecticut school shooting is really a tragic wake-up call using the chance to embrace empathy and transformation or continue residing in ignorance and blame.
Let’s say when an adequate amount of us awaken our empathy-when critical mass is arrived at-we’ll then begin to see the madness of fight against any level.

Keep in mind that our ideas and actions lead to critical mass inside a negative or positive way. Quite simply, your empathy, or lack thereof, affects the earth. Now, this is a effective thought!
The world appears to become reminding us that people cannot escape into ignorance any more. Our kids are our teachers. Let’s pay attention to their message of transformation. What if they’re talking with us from sleep issues of existence. Let’s say their message would go something similar to this:
