Thought for the day    TM Sakaki

Thought for the day    TM Sakaki
> The world surrounding us has definitely been changing in an amazing manner.
> For instance, global warming, a world-widely addressed issue, brings us
> unexpectedly abnormal weather in these days, which we can not help realizing
> the issue closer to us.
> Such the changes can not be limited to nature. Human world nowadays involves
> incredible incidents. It was on April 16 on the Virginia Tech campus in the
> US. Cho, a Korean immigrant killed 32 people and wounded many more before
> committing suicide, making it the deadliest shooting in modern US history.
> Most of you clearly remember the incident.
> In Japan, a 17-year-old teenager was arrested on suspicion of killing and
> beheading his mother in Fukushima prefecture. The teen showed up at a local
> police station with the dismembered head of his mother and said that he
> killed his mother and beheaded during the night while she slept
> What kind of world are we living?
> I found in the latest TM magazine that there exist Speechcraft programs to
> inmates in the Livingston Country Jail supported by the Wine Country TMs in
> nearby Bath, NY. Terry Bilancio, DTM supporting the programs commented that
> "Some of the inmates taking the programs, had obviously not had the
> experience of speaking in front of groups and start to experience the
> positive benefits of getting up in front of people and speaking, and the
> self-esteem that comes by being successful when communicating in a group".
> I think this is something.
