How to stop the train

Dear Fellow Journalers,

There’s a train going 100 xxx m/h and we’re all on it. Each time the conductor slows down, we passengers think we can get off, but no – there’s a new chaotic situation that’s come aboard. We’re surrounded by masked and silent people; we have hungry, unemployed and desperate people all around us. The latest chaotic stopover is to pick up some reporters who tell us of more violence in our streets. Do we really want to get of the train?

We have to – we all have to heal. For those of you who were around during “911” you may remember a courageous young man who led his fellow passengers against the terrorists who had hijacked their plane.Their rally cry was “Let’s roll!”

Well folks, it’s time to get off the train, off despair and hopelessness. The conductor has some ideas  for you to try:

  1. Establish a sense of controlled calm in your life. Yoga, exercise, reading, writing,  creative pursuits.
  2. Mediation
  3. Write or read poetry
  4. Listen to music
  5. Find a place of peace in your mind’s eye and go there during chaotic times.
  6. Write a thank you note to someone.
  7. Make cards for your friends (thinking of you)
  8. Be peaceful. Be well.
