Sandy Hook: A Reminder of Who We Are

by Melody Jean

If this tragedy doesn’t serve as an example that the world needs to rise-up to nourish healthier people then I don’t think anything ever will. It starts one person at a time. It starts with, you, me and everyone around us. While we all are angry that we can’t control this from happening time and again, we can control who we are. Who are we? We are all brothers and sisters, yet we have forgotten this.

The annoying Verizon rep on the phone is your brother or sister as is the person who cut you in line at the store. Yet, in both instances we all will act out of frustration because they have treated us poorly. Perhaps it’s time that we all exude kindness, love and compassion for our fellow brothers and sisters whatever race, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender or disability that he or she hones. The Mayan calendar ends in a few days and many speculate the end of the world. Others say it is not the end, but a shift in consciousness and that we as human beings will rise higher. Gosh, I hope so. If we can glean anything from what transpired, find any good at all from it, perhaps it should be that it serves as a wake-up call to all of us. That we need to try and make the world a better place, with better human beings, even if it’s just one person at time, starting with me and you.
