Wilfred Lai, RIP (2)

It has been 5 days since Wilfred Lai fall to his death on Friday.  Someone placed the first bunch of flowers there sometime on Saturday.  Then a second one. I placed the third. On Monday morning there were 5. By Wednesday morning there were more than 20. 

Obviously his death is affecting us deeply. Many have wept. More are puzzled. Some are scared. Some are even angry.  

Many come to stand for a moment of silence.  Some are afraid to come close.  More seem oblivious.  How is this going to turn out?  Will we learn from it and change the way we work and the way we treat those whom we work with?  Will he be forgotten soon, as if nothing had happened?

Everything happens for a reason.  Something positive can come out of this tragedy if we are determined that it will, but only if we are determined that it will.
