... but how?
Those who were scammed by Brio seem to take one of two stances. The first group is distancing themselves and remaining silent. They justify their stance with comments such as "Karma will take care of it." "What goes around, comes around." "I don't want to put negative energy into the birth world." "They'll ruin themselves in the end." The second group is actively trying to warn others and to redress what wrongs they can. They don't want others to get hurt the way they were - or worse. They want the community to be able to heal and move forward. They are often criticized, sometimes very harshly, by others for their actions. My question to those who would rather remain silent is, how can you know when you might have been the one person able to warn the next victim? How can you know that your action is not what would finally be the tipping point for stopping the scam once and for all?
A former Brio educator shares:
After WWII, some German students volunteered to help rebuild a cathedral in England that had been heavily damaged by Luftwaffe bombings. As they worked, one of their tasks was to rebuild the statue of Jesus that had stood outside the church. Jesus' hands were outstretched, and the statue had an inscription that read, "Come Unto Me." They were able to piece together almost all of the statue, but they could not find Jesus' hands. Finally, they reached a decision that has taught many a valuable lesson: they left the reassembled statue without hands, and put a new inscription on the statue: "I Have No Hands But Yours."
For those of you who believe that karma will take care of it, how do you know that karma is not trying to use YOUR hands?
