Perspective & the Results of our Actions

Today I followed a tweet from the University of Virginia that showed what geographic area the Gulf oil disaster would affect if it was centered at UVa’s Rotunda. Using the same site, here’s what it would affect on Day 51 if it was centered in my own back yard.

Think of every animal, plant and human in that geographic area being adversely affected. It is frightening and infuriating.

The situation illustrates how systems and people fail – not deliberately but regularly. What does that mean in our own daily lives and work responsibilities? We can’t wait till things break to fix problems.
