We’ve all heard the horrific news about the massacre that took place in Colorado this past weekend. To say the least, I was in sheer agony in realizing what had just happened.

I began to ask myself questions such as, “I’m I doing enough?”, “Have I become numb to this kind of news?” My answer to both questions was “No.” 

No, I am not doing enough. No, I have not become numb. In a world where we are bombarded with horrific news over the airways as well as the Internet, we can become numb to the crisis that surrounds us. While this was a tragedy, there are more tragedies that are happening right around us every single day that never make the six o’clock news.

We can no longer sit quietly and do nothing. Marianne Williamson once said that “terrorists are ferocious when it comes to their commitment to what they believe. They visualize how they want the world to be, then they take action.”

What about us? As women, we hold an enormous amount of power to create change in the world. Yet, we sit back and watch in awe at the horror that is taking over our cities.

What can we do to take responsibility for generating a better future? We’ve got to first believe that we have such power to course a new future.

We can no longer remain numbed out and not rise up. We’ve got to do it and we got to do it together.

You and I must resist the urge to isolate, the need to shutdown and withdraw and think that we can do this without each other. That’s simply not true.

As a community, we’ve got to respond. But how we choose to respond is really the issue.
