Reflection by Mary E. Latela, August 8, 2017
“They will be met with fire, fury and, frankly, power, the likes of which this world has never seen before,” said the President on this fine day.
Here’s a thought: So here’s a suggestion: “think before you speak!” or “don’t threaten others!” or “before you unleash your inner fury, stop and edit your comments.” This is a time for stability, for considered reflection. Sitting there, arms crossed like a boy who’s mad at the world, bespeaks belligerence. And that is the point.
You meet an angry animal, foaming at the mouth, coming your way. Why not go inside and compose a statement that indicates calm, courageous, sure leadership. Allowing the angry animal to come at you is path to disaster.
