My condolences to all 😥
BUT PLEASE NOTE … These school shootings are preventable … not by tighter security or even gun control, but by a mindset shift.
Just blaming those who harm is fruitless because those who harm are severely broken … so what is needed is a new way of thinking about and treating each other … in our homes, communities, and schools.
My anger is generated by my frustration level with people unwilling to listen and change the mindsets that break people to the point they lash out with violence, not just against themselves, but against anyone they can reach. If you really want to curtail this insanity, help me implement the changes in schools and communities with the “Connecting The Dots With The Respect Principle” books, products, and services that have the power to change what is so severely broken.
I don’t allow myself to hate anymore, but to forgive and pray for those inflicting harm.
Instead, I use my anger as fuel to engage to create the needed positive changes … because moments of outrage followed by apathy or a sense of helplessness aren’t cutting it … as the violent deaths of more youth and teachers continue.
Do what you can … introduce your school and community to “Connecting The Dots With The Respect Principle,” suggest they bring me into present the concept and discuss the benefits, encourage them to add the books to their school curriculum, secure a copy of the play to introduce the concept to their school and community … not just for me and my company, but for what my company can do to help minimize and even eliminate potential threats.
Know this … I do what I do so every child, regardless of what they might have or are experiencing, will learn they are valuable … to be respected … simply for being a life.
WHY? Because everyone who feels valued … respected will not have the desire to harm his or her self nor anyone else.
This is not a theory, but a logical, practical, and compassionate solution I developed because of what I have learned from my own experience, research, and studies and what has worked for me.
Watch the following video for why and how …
