The ocean has receded

A tsunami survivor is on the beach. They see the ocean recede into the distance and realize what it means.

So they start alerting people to what’s coming. But rather than listen, the people ask their friends what the water receding could mean. And their friends give them all kinds of answers. And many of them are reassuring.

“It’s a hoax.” “We haven’t had a tsunami for 100 years.” “I’m sure it will be fine.”

So they do very little when they could be doing a lot.

And then the tsunami comes.

People who are good at what they do don’t have to tell you

How a person behaves & what they do is far more reflective of the truth than what they say.

Strong leadership & caring for others involves a lot more than simply stating you care for others.

People who are good at what they do don’t have to tell you — they show it.

If you now lack confidence that your elected officials are working 100% for the people they are responsible for leading, protecting, and representing — this is why it’s important to vote for competent people who do more than just try to personally benefit from their position.

It doesn’t affect me

We live in a world where an unfortunate number of people believe that if something isn’t affecting them directly, it doesn’t matter.

And so people who could avoid making a problem worse don’t take action because they must be personally inconvenienced by something before deciding to do anything about it. And by then, the consequences are worse than they would have been — sometimes catastrophically & irreversibly.

Corona virus is not overhyped

While you may think the Corona Virus is overhyped — and remain unconcerned because you’re not at a high risk of dying from it — that doesn’t mean the people you could give it to who could die from it feel the same way. The people dying are part of someone’s family.

This “I don’t care if I get the #coronavirus” attitude is a lot like the “I’ve had a few drinks but I’m good to drive” or “I’m good at texting & driving.”

It’s not always about *you* — it’s about the people you put at risk by being irresponsible.
