“The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.” Socrates
Should I write about the shooting in the US? The awful loss of innocent lives and the media who amp it up, make the shooter famous, ignore the victims and the internet and social media that allows it to spread so fast. No.
Because what this attrocity (and it is) has proven is that I know nothing. Nothing about a country that somehow breeds such contempt for life. Contempt the country itself condemns in other countries and religions and yet has more loss of life like this in it’s own back yard.
I know some Americans. They are excellent people. Normal people. They don’t all carry guns.
And I definitely can’t get caught up in the Facebook sharing and hysteria. Because only the pretty ones get shared and we are only getting half the story.
Oops I’ve written about it.
So why the subject line nothing-ness … When these things happen I feel a black hole has opened and sucked a bunch of goodness from the world.
But something inspired me this week that will help you fill this black hole just a bit. Watch what happened when some discovered the body of a violin in a dump. A dump where they sort trash to make a living.
It’s inspirational and perfect for this time of the year.
Have a great week.
One big thing that inspired me this week.
