How did we fall so far? WHY did we fall so far?
I know there are no simple answers and I don’t expect anyone to offer one. Somehow, against all our wills, we got here anyway. We tried. We thought we’d made some progress. We failed. And now, we are taking our failures and turning them into calamities that go beyond anything we ever imagined in our darkest nightmares.
I will be perkier tomorrow because I’m turning 75. That ought to be a celebration, shouldn’t it? I promise to celebrate. I will turn my head away from the world’s nightmare and look for a ray of hope. That’s about as good as I can do.
