There is so much good that we can share and then a student texted me some bad news . . .
The Sadness of Kauhajoki Tragedy
I must commiserate with the shocking news of the shooting incident in Kauhajoki today.
A 22 year old Finnish man, Matti Saari, shoot and killed many people (update 10 dead) in a vocational school in Kauhajoki. Not all the facts are known yet. Police have sealed off the area and press are denied access. Youtube and other websites have taken down pages for user Wumpscut86 but information has been archived by some internet users.
If it can comfort you, I want you to know that my work is about creating a better future for humanity. Last year, we had prepared an open conference about the Jokela High School tragedy – unfortunately this was obstructed by career professionals in the Tuusula municipality. Although Finns could not believe that the shooting could happen it obviously could. I warned that it could happen again (and this is an uncomfortable thing to warn about). It has been less than 1 year since the Jokela school massacre and the modus operadi is similar.
I leave you with the question “What concrete steps has the government actually taken to safeguard your children since Jokela?” – if no solution has been implemented then it falls on your shoulders to make something constructive happen.
The human race can, inspite of its history, became a channel for peace, love, happiness and joy.
