I have been heartbroken over the incidents of shootings inside our schools. Each time, my heart goes out to those who are innocent victims. Along with the rest of the nation, I think about what could be done to ensure that we never have another incident like that again.
One thing really bothers me about all these incidents.
The person responsible for the shooting simply did not know how to understand and resolve his troubled emotions.
Everything in our lives is powered by emotion.
Those shootings, at the very core root, were really a response or result of the turmoil and feelings that person felt “inside”.
Because those emotions were so powerful, and because they were so painful, the person saw no other way to act or respond. Their unresolved emotions were, therefore, guiding their actions. None of these individuals were able to draw on the values of character, integrity, and responsibility as a result.
Emotions lead to action.
