The ability to sell is a skill of the highest value. In start-ups, sales is key to finding product-market fit, raising venture money, recruiting the best, driving revenue, pitching the press. But so few MBAs go into sales…
When you think of sales, what is the first word that comes to mind?

According to my OED, the word "chief" to mean "ruler" or "head of a body of men" entered the English language 200 years before Columbus set sail
The word “chief” will no longer be used in reference to job titles in the San Francisco Unified School District in an effort, school officials said, to avoid the word’s connotation with Native Americans. A replacement term has not been determined. trib.al/9p3b7TT

I'm also struggling with my understanding of how people in this country value human life. We have 25,000 homicides a year in this country, 19k of which are from guns. There are 1.2 million ER visits a year from assault...

We fight wars where we kill hundreds of thousands of people. And yes, we allow abortion. The rate is dropping but it's been as high as 1 million babies aborted per year. (For the record - I do think abortion is ending a life, and I think it should be the woman's choice).

I think that there is a lot we can learn from other countries, but also it seems that we have some cultural issues that may be unique. Our murder rate is the 4th highest in the world. What makes a country have a high murder rate? worldpopulationreview.com/co…

Additionally, there are countries where they do essentially limit gun handling to professionals, and there is little violence in society. For example, in Israel, there are a lot of guns. You see soldiers all over, carrying ARs. Their murder rate is a fraction of ours.

I guess this is all to say I'm left with more questions than answers following yesterday's tragedy. What can we learn from other countries and apply to our own? What can we be doing to help young teens with mental health? What else could have protected those children?

How can we as a society grapple with the tradeoffs inherent in our constitution and its associated rights? How are we to process the tragedy of what happened yesterday? What good, if any, can come from this event?

I am so saddened and upset about yesterday - and the state of our country. I'm furious at the people turning this event into a political wedge. My plan is to attend synagogue this Friday night. Hopefully, the Rabbis of New York will have some wisdom to bear. (end)
