Risking Our Future

View comments on this itemAdd your comment on this item2 The horrendous tragedy of September the 11th, 2001 may prove to be the catalytic push to our passing the Breakpoint where after all the rules by which we have lived and worked, will all change significantly. Reverberating over the media waves, even before World Trade Centers hellishly vanished from the proud New York City landscape, proclamations were being made as to how all our lives are about to change. Even as our eyes beheld the unbelievable and our lips withheld the unmentionable, the search for answers had begun in earnest.

I will lead off by asking, "Just what do we hold dear?" Anything less than answers that lead on toward building positive futures, will ultimately put us all at risk.

Add your comment on this item4 So as not to put our future at risk, we must not just begin to ask probing, wide sweeping questions, but answer them.
