rockmea, i tend to agree, also.
I don't think that it's the end of the world were after, but a "change"!
I think people, especially in the US, are seeking a "kinder-gentler" time.
Kinda like that movie, Pleasantville. With things having gone the way they have the last few years, it's no wonder.
The last 14 years have been frought with a type of madness.
Technology hasn't helped much either. And, it seems the world has become a much smaller place. I see way more foreigners in this country than i
ever used to. Not that that's bad, just is. The bad part about it to me is that they take the jobs, get the low interest loans to go into business,
and even take their toll on the US's welfare system.
I, personally, knew that a BIG change was taking place during the first Gulf war when at one moment we were looking at the newscaster in NY, or DC,
and the next in Riyadh. I knew then that technology had changed tremendously and we were at the beginning of a new age.
rockmea, you're right, "an awakening", or "destruction", and i'm not sure an "awakening" on the magnitude necessary is possible.
