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?
