So it’s the morning after and incredulity has been replaced by fatigue.
There was an interesting discussion on the radio yesterday. The topic was: Should this all result in Americans going to war as the attack on Pearl Harbor did, whether or not my generation has the fortitude to embark on such an endeavor as the WWII guys did. Judging by how tired I am from just watching, one can’t help thinking that we do not.
In the same breath, though, look at the bravery and the tireless efforts of the rescue workers, look at the thousands of people country-wide to donate blood, look at the outporing of compassion for strangers never met, and look at the resolve of a nation that by all rights could crumble down into despair. We are a nation of survivors, and I believe we have the mettle to pass this test.
