I was thinking today about the man who was planning to shoot a bunch of people here in Hogtown about a year ago.
If you don’t know the story, he drove to a park in the east end, planning to shoot dead as many people as he could before he was gunned down by the police. His car was loaded with guns and ammo. He got out of his car, and was getting ready to open fire when a dog he didn’t know ran up, and started to play with him.
He decided not to kill anyone because the dog showed unconditional kindness to him. The man turned himself into the police so he wouldn’t change his mind later.
Last night at the meeting we discussed small bits of change that can hopefully make a tiny difference in someone”s life. Silly things like blowing up as many balloons as you can on the subway, with other agents doing likewise. Try to tape them to the walls if you can. Drop confetti . . . have fun.
Who knows, you may not know it at the time, but you could change someone’s life.
Hail Eris. All Hail Discordia.
*****EDIT: This man later admitted to having made the entire episode up.
