Is there a better direction
for our society to choose? A way to find old friends, not lose
them? A sensitivity to what is leading the superpowers to join
in panic? Can we find an antidote to all this? A rededication
to the idea that led us to become a nation, updated with our
knowing now that the world flows together or it blows apart?
A willingness to share resources with the people who are here
now, and share also with so many more yet to arrive here, with
needs as real as ours, including their needing to know that we
were capable of thinking of them? More immediately, we can
protect our children's right to have a chance to grow up, and
our own right to love watching them grow up?
