Top of Mind Thursday May 2, 2019: In the Line of Fire

Top of Mind Thursday

 

 

 

 

Twice in the last week, innocent civilians put themselves in the path of bullets, sacrificing their lives to save others.

Leverage2Market LogoOn Saturday, Lori Kaye stepped in front of her rabbi during a shooting at a synagogue in Poway, CA, likely saving his life. On Tuesday in North Carolina, Riley Howell ran toward an armed gunman, knocking him down and giving others the ability to escape.

We know that first responders run towards a disaster while everyone else runs away. But how often do we see ordinary people step up and put their lives at risk to save others?

This doesn’t mean we should all put ourselves in danger in these kind of situations. But it should make us wonder, is there something we can do to provide help to those in trouble–just a small action that repeated by many others might make a world of difference.

Today is Holocaust Remembrance Day–a day to stop and think about the millions of people who were exterminated in the Holocaust in Europe in the 1940s, as well as those who have died in similar genocides in the decades since then.

Holocaust survivor and Nobel laureate Elie Wiesel said, “The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference.”

Let us take a moment to honor all those who have died unjustly, including Lori and Riley this past week, by considering what we can each do to help heal the world by shedding our indifference.
