Do we have to be victims?
As I scan the headlines, I see so many events in which the participants have not taken control over their environment. The headlines in the New York Times refer to the aftermath of a hurricane in Florida, the breakdown of truce talks in Iraq, and the destruction if children's lives in the Sudan. The essential randomness of these events is guaranteed to increase the feelings of insecurity so many people have. In turn, this paralyzes our ability to take the leadership role and shape our own destiny. It is critical that we all, move beyond these feelings and act to change our environment.
