“We gain strength, and courage, and confidence by each experience in which we really stop to look fear in the face… we must do that which we think we cannot.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
Over the past several weeks I have made some interesting observations:
As Americans, our arrogance prevented us from being prepared for an inevitability. We deserved to look like fools. It is just terribly sad that pride has resulted in pain, suffering, and death.
As humans, fear overtakes our rational minds no matter which country or race we claim as our own.
And that, ladies and gents, is all she wrote.
At least for tonight.
