telescope-891714_1920Once again we’ve gone through a violent attack and the parallels to past situations, whether they were gun violence or terrorist attacks, is startling.

There are always common elements:

 

First responders rush to the scene and into the violence rather than away from it

Ordinary citizens rise to the occasion with acts of valor and courage

The community rallies as it denounces the violence

Leaders show an ability to say and do the “right things ”in the moment of crisis

Heartfelt tributes and tears are all over the news and social media

We get to know the victims through their life stories, which focus on “what might have been”

Funds are raised for the funerals and medical care of the victims

 

There is also one missing elements and that is CHANGE…nothing changes after these attacks. Gradually the stories disappear from the front pages and people move on.

I am not disparaging the above reactions, which are our human way of coping.

What if we could harness this incredible ability to come together BEFORE something terrible happens? What if we could use it to unite us for a powerful cause, a good cause for positive change?

Why do we always wait for a crisis to bring out the best in all of us?

I believe people react well in a crisis because it gives them a clear purpose and a way to take action. I believe that most people would come together for a vision and a purpose where a way to take action is clear.

 

What if we had a politician who could provide this leadership from a place of personal integrity, and who could embody the values of country before ego?

Then we would be united and able to move forward together with a belief in a noble purpose.

We would be an unstoppable force for positive change.
