If studying Stoicism has taught me anything it has taught me that it is for the best to take emotions out of decisions
I’m deeply saddened by the events that have unfolded in Uvalde this week. I think it’s important for all us to take the time to let the emotions process from this tragedy. Being a father, I empathize with the families of these children and the loss they have endured.
We see so many talking about this event and now is the time for action. Now is the time to put in reforms to make sure the next school shooting does not happen.
I have no doubt something needs to be done and soon. However, I also feel like that we need time to let the emotions process before taking lasting action.
If you want to determine the nature of anything, entrust it to time: when the sea is stormy, you can see nothing clearly.Seneca
The Roman Stoic Philosopher Seneca said it best. “If you want to determine the nature of anything, entrust it to time: when the sea is stormy, you can see nothing clearly.”
We are hurting as a nation. Is the problem guns? Is it culture? Is it security?
We have to sort out the emotions BEFORE we make decisions on this issue.
Remember to love first… on this issue and all the rest!
Happy Saturday friends and hold those whom you love tight!
