This morning, as I read the Los Angeles Times’ front page coverage of the senseless and evil slaughter of 59 innocent people and the wounding of more than 500 others at a concert in Las Vegas, I was filled with sadness and anger. The message I was going to share with you today in my weekly Business Perspective seemed pale in comparison to the pain and grief so many families and friends of those who died or were injured are feeling today.
All of us at the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce express our overwhelming sympathies and sadness for your loss, your pain and the total disruption of your lives.
This past weekend, Janice and I attended a birthday party for our 11 year old granddaughter. She and four of her friends celebrated her birthday by organizing and carrying out 11 random acts of kindness on Sunday afternoon. The acts of kindness they delivered were to senior citizens, police officers, neighbors, and random individuals in stores and on the streets of their community. Their acts were met with both surprise and appreciation, and they brought smiles to dozens of faces, including our granddaughter and her friends.
On a day like today, nothing seems adequate in response to the senseless loss of so many lives. Perhaps we can all start with a random act of kindness as a first step in countering the random acts of evil that cause great pain in this world every day.
And that's The Business Perspective.
