Crisis. We hear about a crisis situation on the news or from a friend or on the radio virtually every day. In the United States and around our world…fear and shock are becoming a norm and the instability of life is fearfully present. Crisis can be described as the culmination of a series or sequence of events. What we can hope for/work for is a turning point, a change, a realization that better actions can keep these crisis situations from reaching full fruition.

 Our future depends on step by step stopping the word “crisis” from being such a large portion of our thoughts and conversation. We must work together. We must be supportive of each other. We must show pride in our country. We must show empathy, but yet be strong in our resolve to keep crisis situations at bay.

In the video preceding this post, The Eagles sing their Grammy winning song titled “Hole in the World”. This currently relevant song was written by Don Henley and the late Glenn Frey in response to the 9/11 crisis. The words speak to me in so many ways…a plea to the world for understanding and compromise. The words read:


There’s  a hole in the world tonight.

There’s a cloud of fear and sorrow.

There’s a hole in the world tonight.

Don’t let there be a hole in the world tomorrow.


They say that anger is jut love disappointed.

They say that love is just a state of mind,

But all this fighting over who will be anointed,

Oh…how can people be so blind?


Oh they tell me there’s a place over yonder,

Cool water running through the burning sand.

Until we learn to love one another

We will never reach the promise land.


We can’t let there be a hole in the world tomorrow. We can’t let crisis be such a common denominator of our world…of our cities.
