On the first anniversary of the Haiti 2010 earthquake there will be plenty of compelling stories that will trigger our memories of that eventful day. There will be finger-pointing and blame toward those groups who said that they would do something, but have fallen short. Many others will be attend events that will highlight the grave situation that continues to exist in this poor nation. Others will use this day to raise awareness and funds to build churches, schools and orphanages. This is all fine and good, but we repeat these actions whenever a tragedy captures the World’s attention.
Let us try something different for Haiti on this important day….
Quotes from Albert Einstein:
“We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.”
“A man should look for what is, and not for what he thinks should be.”
“Anyone who doesn’t take truth seriously in small matters cannot be trusted in large ones either.”
“Concern for man and his fate must always form the chief interest of all technical endeavors. Never forget this in the midst of your diagrams and equations.”
“God does not play dice.”
“In matters of truth and justice, there is no difference between large and small problems, for issues concerning the treatment of people are all the same.”
“It should be possible to explain the laws of physics to a barmaid.”
“Memory is deceptive because it is colored by today’s events.”
“No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.”
Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
It has been one year and the CementTrust focus remains on eliminating shovel mixing and letting the skilled Haitian workers have access to the same technology that we have been blessed with.
Albert Einstein would never suggest that this insanity continue… Would you?
