On doing good
In the wake of the rather embarrassing and sad riots that rocked Vancouver following the Canucks Stanley Cup final loss to the Boston Bruins, I've been troubled by the kind of human behavior, the total lack of caring, that leads to things like this in the first place.
On last night's news, a reporter caught up with a 20-year-old guy who had just been charged for participating in the riot. His total lack of remorse and WTF-ish attitude threw me off, as if he'd happily dive in again if the opportunity presented itself.
I felt a chill as I watched him speak. I worry for our future if this is what surrounds us.
Maybe the Rev. Tutu's words will help counterbalance all of this week's bad karma:
Your turn: Thoughts?
