Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown Connecticut
On February 12, 2012, discussing The Mayan Calendar and the nearby “predicted” end of the world, I wrote:
“ … Close to the end of the year, … for a small minority of troubled individuals, their belief will develop into a self-fulfilling prophecy.
In their misguided certainty that the world will actually end, resorting to extreme or illegal behavior, they will put themselves and others at risk.
Yes indeed, while there will be a brief spike in the number of murders, rapes, accidents and suicides worldwide, for the vast majority of rational people, December 21st, 2012 will pass without incident and life will continue as normal on December 22nd.”
Looking back at my upcoming predictions, I can only hope that I was wrong then and yesterday.
