Jay-Z said something to David Letterman on Letterman's new Netflix series recently that I found thought-provoking. He said that Trump has brought forward--without conscious intent--issues simmering under the surface of our culture (humanity?) for decades, if not centuries, that need to be looked at. A few of those issues include corruption because of power and ego, harassment and demeaning of women to keep them silent and "second class," and racial discrimination. He said this was a crisis opportunity to examine these ugly hidden issues that have now been revealed and on the table for discussion. This was a helpful way to look at--what I consider a very dark period in our country's history. All is not for nought. And conversations we are indeed having! Just look at the societal turbulence. There seems to be an evolutionary force at work that is pushing our depravities and unsavory human desires to the surface so we can deal with them: Sexual abuse in many venues--religious, household, industry, and more. And then there's our desire for violence which emerges in the many shootings, road rages, and domestic and child abuse. Sure, we project the awfulness onto the lone shooter or the angry driver or the untoward person who commits atrocious acts in the home. But it's time to look deeply into ourselves and solve the problem instead of projecting it outward. The violence in our society means there is something wrong in our thinking, believing, and behaving. How can I be a part of the solution is the question we must ask ourselves--on all fronts. Let's use the energy now available in the form of outrage to dive deep. We are in the time of great opportunity for change.
