It is a hard call for words

The siege tragedy that unfolded in the centre of Sydney yesterday morning and ended in deaths of innocents & trauma for the other hostages in the Lindt Chocolate cafe....this morning
is so difficult to contemplate ... 
it alters one's perspective in many ways....
*
Anger in a society is never a solution, anger with in the home is never a solution.
Competitiveness at the expense of another person as a collective is a disgrace ........
We are bombarded by it on media at all levels, even called entertainment now, political parties expose so much bad behaviour also & multi national companies call it doing business 
& all of that seeps into the behaviour of each of us at a small level...and alters our culture..
Add a dose of extreme fear....
*
Now we can change things right at the bottom...
By being kinder to each person..
No I don't mean the over abundance of hugging..
but hug of course but with sincerity...
*
Being mindful of the other person... not acting out something to score a point...
Turn off the dreaded phones when you are with company & talk to the person in front of you...
*
Just little small things.... we need our gifts that care for each of the people in our lives....
and if that cannot be, walk away....don't stick about for a little sugar  hit of revenge..
*
Let's clean up our society as this morning's events 
leave many many traumatised 
& they need a loving nation to cling to...to believe in
 so we help them by helping each other...smile, say hello to a person you pass by in the street...
