Mediation is usually a place where conflict is resolved. We are saddened to hear that three people are dead after a man shot a corporate attorney and his client following a mediation session Wednesday in Phoenix. The man, who later committed suicide, was allegedly litigious and had anger-management issues.
Dr. Viktor Frankl, who wrote ”Man’s Search for Meaning,” promoted the theory that the search for value and meaning in the circumstances of one’s life was the key to psychological well-being. He suggested that despair can be overcome by discovering meaning in life, which in turn provides the will and strength to endure difficult times. He shared that no matter what, where or how, we retain, ”the last of the human freedoms, to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.”
Please choose peace, do not be discouraged by setbacks or failure, and don’t be afraid to use mediation to resolve conflict.
