Yesterday, after I tried to send the right message to my blog readers for the 2617th consecutive time, I saw this message at my local post office:
And I thought, how do we send the right message? And what makes a message right? And even if we do figure out how to send the right message, who’s to say how different people will receive and understand our message?
I don’t know if this is the right message, but I wonder what messages our governments and the media are sending these days. I also wonder if anybody is listening to other people’s messages. It seems like most people have decided what messages they are going to hear and they are not open to hearing any new messages, no matter how right they are.
Lately, I’ve been choosing to send the right message mostly through photos, like these:
When I was walking by the beach yesterday, I heard“Message in a Bottle” by the Police.
Millions of people have gotten that message of “I’ll send an S.O.S. to the world.” Is that the right message?
I look forward to any messages you send in the comments section, below.
Thanks to the amazing people who help me create the messages in this daily blog and to all who read those messages, like YOU!
