an eye-opener. Learn more about Sean Whalen and why his video is a must-watch here.
Who Is Sean Whalen?
Sean Whalen is a motivational speaker from Utah, among many things. His YouTube profile describes him as “the unapologetically direct CEO of the internationally renowned coaching and consulting company LIONS NOT SHEEP.”
On February 14, Whalen posted a video soon after news of the horrifying Florida massacre broke out. In the aftermath of the shooting, many who knew the shooter, Nikolas Cruz, said they saw the warnings signs in him.
In his video, Whalen says that the children who had an inkling about Cruz didn’t come forward because they were afraid of hurting anyone’s feelings. He claims that political correctness is not more important than a “child’s life.”
He implores children to speak out if they feel uncomfortable about a fellow student. He also asks parents and teachers to be a listening ear instead of hushing them to protect someone’s feelings. The video has resonated with many who feel that the warnings about Cruz were ignored.
However, some have also pointed out that Whalen hasn’t touched upon Cruz’s expulsion from the school because of his behavior or that the FBI was aware he was a threat. Some believe that it’s not enough that the kids speak out more since there are a lot more factors involved in the shooting incident.
