It is with a heavy heart that I write this note. Just as Mumbai was slowly beginning to gain confidence, terror struck again. Like you, the disgust, agony and helplessness I feel is overwhelming and is beyond words. Perhaps the only silver lining is that all my family, friends, and fellow-employees in People Group are safe.
While we may not have the circle of influence to fix the broader issues in our country, maybe we can all do some things in our own small ways. Here are a few thoughts –
– Let’s not fan rumors. If you do not have confirmed news about something do not send chain emails and smses. They tend to create panic.
– If we happen to find ourselves in an unfortunate incident, let’s promise ourselves that we will help others. All too often people are too busy taking pictures rather than providing support.
– Let’s ensure that we will report any unidentified and suspicious package in any public place immediately.
– As a family unit, friend's circle, or as an organization, we should all plan how we would react in crisis situations.
Please think about what else we can do in our individual capacities and share your thoughts. Also, please observe 2 minutes in prayer for victims and their near and dear ones.
