My TED talk seems all the more appropriate given the tragedies of the past few days. Innocents die by senseless, unprovoked acts. Communities become scared and scarred. The media sells fear in order to increase profit. Anger burns. Horrific violence occurs. Innocents die. The cycle repeats and builds.
How do you stop this tornado, this hurricane, this spinning out of control? Take shelter. In each other. See others for who they really are: someone just like you, wanting to trust and be trusted. Turn away from your television and turn to your friends and neighbors. Build your community by seeing what is good and by believing in one another.
