Like the sensei said, we grab for what is there, but refuse to hold on

Like the sensei said, we grab for what is there, but refuse to hold on. We (you and I, the USA, the World) all want peace, freedom, and the pursuit of happiness. Why is it within our grasp, yet we won’t grab a hold?

Because we are heavily influenced by pleasure, power, abundance.

We take short cuts, we give people inappropriate breaks, we allow inexcusable exceptions, we get distracted, we put off until tomorrow what deep down we will never do.

And then we (mostly publicly) pretend to search our souls for answers.

I was a complete joke, and maybe still am. I confess here.

Did Sandy Hook happen because of this simple cultural concept and failure?

Did Sandy Hook happen because of this simple cultural concept?

What we accept by default, becomes the standard.

I need more time to think.

We all do.

Here’s what happens when we remain ridiculous long enough.

We grab for what is always there, but we always let go. Why? Sandy Hook

Why did Sandy Hook happen? My first thoughts. My second thoughts. Here are my third thoughts. I have yet to watch, listen, or read any Sandy Hook news. It’s been eight days since December 14, 2012. Here’s where I’m at:

The parents, relatives, friends, staff, neighbors – anyone who personally knew those 26 precious lives. What happened? Why?

And what did it do to us individually? As small town communities? As a nation? As a global family?

And what will become, if anything, of this?

West Side Middle School. Thurston High School. Columbine. Oklahoma City bombing.

My friend’s teenage Son, while sitting on his back porch pulled a pistol’s trigger as it was pressed against his temple.

What? Why?

I can only do this in small chunks…. tomorrow… more…

What are the biggest, nagging questions we’ve been carrying?

What are the biggest, most nagging questions we’ve been carrying most, if not all, of our lives? Twelve of those questions are here.

And tomorrow, I hope to revisit something that’s been troubling the world me – Sandy Hook, now that I’ve had eight days to think.

Why did the Sandy Hook tragedy happen a few days ago? (part 2)

Why did the Sandy Hook tragedy happen a few days ago? (part 2)

Truth be told, it’s a Monday morning as I write this. Lots to do before a 20-day vacation that starts in three days.

The first thought this morning revolves around yesterday’s last two bullet points.

Somewhere in the midst of Sandy Hook’s horror, is our own horror nerve ending being exposed.

There are things in our life we need to stop. These things are a tragedy. And we’ll live with regret if we don’t change…
