I have been reflecting recently, as I read various articles about leaders and their actions and comments world wide, what a great responsibility leadership is. Leaders have strong personalities and the ability to influence the decisions and choices of others. This is a responsibility that should not be taken lightly by those in leadership positions. They should be accountable for actions by their follows as if they were their own actions. Leaders should not make short sighted, judgmental and thoughtless comments because these can weigh heavily on the medium to long-term well being of their followers.

Sue Vincent has the word footprints as her prompt this week. As I had leadership and its consequences, both good and bad, on my mind, I wrote the following two tanka poems.
