Drawing perspective from tragedy

Drawing perspective from tragedy

In today’s society, our heads are constantly filled with heart wrenching news stories like the horrific attacks in London over the weekend, causing us to question humanity and constantly ask, ‘why’. Sometimes there is no answer to that why, the pain that a select few cause for so many is truly unthinkable. But if we let these individuals instill constant fear in our hearts then they win. When we see terror in the media, we must grieve and allow our hearts and prayers to go out to the families that have personally suffered. What can we do in addition to grieving, to avoid those tragedies happening in vein? We can realise that sweating the small stuff is futile. Just because you’re a little cold today in your office, or your fuel light has just come on or someone cuts you off on the road, it’s not all that bad when you allow perspective in and remember that it could be so much worse. These tragedies around the world need to in some way bring the world closer together. We also need to begin to count our blessings not our problems – start to be grateful every day for the little wins and the small blessings. And as individuals, we need to consider working towards uniting as one race – the human race. On an individual level, we need to let go of race, gender, sexual preference or religion.
