What we don’t see….CAN hurt. Violence, anger, strife, held beneath the surface can cause harm. Such harm often leads to hurt, fear, pain that maim, and even ultimate death.
Look around. This has been on the rise. Happening often with the common comment “quiet person causes no harm”.
Silent River Runs Deep.
Silent River Runs Deep… is an old fable that seems to be applicable these days.
Woke up to the news that a father shot his 2 kids then turned the gun on himself. The feedback …”good parent, no signs of child abuse, always good father”. And there are many many more stories like this.
What’s going on?… is the common question.
Time for society to pull together. To work together within our communities to help. Signs. There are always signs. If only we see, if only our eyes are open. We’re now a society with heads down. Heads down in our phone. Heads down in virtuality, when the real world holds us as victims.
It’s time to raise our heads up. Open our eyes. Take a look at our neighbors, coworkers, friends, families; and at times our foes; our haters, our enemies. Let’s look; recognize the signals being sent. All around us there are signs.
Let’s not wait until it’s ….too late.
