Assets in Action: Be alert, be aware

-A A +A
By Bernadette Lauritzen

The Assets program oversees the local coordination of a program called Change of Heart.
The seven-hour curriculum is about improving school climate. It focuses on more than bullying — like the foundational relationships and life experiences that mold youth throughout their school years.
After what happened in Aurora, Colo., on Friday, I feel I would be remiss not to address it, at least on a local level.
I’m actually quite impressed that we haven’t seen everyone that has ever known the shooter coming forward to have their say and get their 15-minutes of fame.
Their police department isn’t leaking out every detail of what is going on post-event. They are releasing what needs to be known and that’s it.
As individuals, what we should take from this event is how we act every day, in every situation.
My uneducated guess is that someone should have noticed something. Someone could have noticed if this young man had no friends, someone could have noticed he was receiving boxes from gun shops.
It is the small details that people pick up on that often result in tragic events not happening on a daily basis — we just don’t get to hear about them as much.
