Being offended has surpassed baseball as the American national pass-time.
We have reached a fevered pitch in our country where the divisive nature of division itself has eaten up society like a cancer.
It is so virtuous to be a victim that it has become an effective public relations event. If you can manage to be caught in the media being victimized your name becomes a household word in a matter of hours.
Even to the extent people are willing to risk it all, to lie, to fabricate events, to manipulate facts and make claims of nothing for the sake of publicity JUST TO BE A VICTIM.
As leaders, we need to have wisdom and grace to know who is really being victimized SO WE CAN HELP TO PROTECT THEM and who is proverbially crying wolf so they may receive the justice they deserve not the glory they are seeking.
If you have thought it is a viable strategy to cry victim for the fame, the fortune or the revenge please think again. The backlash may be more notoriety than you can handle.
