Are we becoming a crying wolf society?
“The villagers came running up the hill to help the boy drive the wolf away. But when they arrived at the top of the hill, they found no wolf. The boy laughed at the sight of their angry faces.”
Aesop must have been foretelling the future or this must be a human condition that has plagued our species since we could write such a fable. My brothers were dismissed from Valley View School District early today because the school received their third bomb threat. People say a third is the charm and the boys came running into the house confirming that officials found something. As I just sat there soaking up the energy in the room, I was taken away that people now might be feeling ignorant to the false threats. It’s all fun and games until someone gets hurt.
Upon the news, I decided to Google search bomb threats across the nation and to my astonishment there are reports at other universities and schools. This seems to be an everyday occurrence at least and could this pose a problem for our education system or society at large. Will we eventually ignore such signs and then come to regret our ignorance? As I venture further along my soul path, I am understanding that with each situation we should react purely or be caught in a “crying wolf syndrome.”
What does it mean to react purely? Well, we experience events and people’s actions in a new light and really need to focus on our intuition to guide us into ignoring the act altogether or proceed with utmost care. The decision is up to you and if it does deal with something as serious as a threat, I hope you always go above and beyond to ensure safety.
Getting rid of anger
Parents and students are proving to be angry over the matter at hand. My advice is just be glad you and your child is a live. Don’t give into the negative energy because that just in turn fuels the situation more. Focus on the overall mission of security and love.
