Sitting here glued to this thread....biting my nails in anticipation of yet another possibly globally life changing event.....it's the Super Bowl of
Global Events folks....BP Gulf Oil Spill vs Free Gaza Flotilla vs Israel....ok the recent earthquakes lost in the playoffs....geez.
I remember a few years ago here in California there was a jet that had it's front landing gear jammed in such a way the tires were perpindicular to
the plane. The plane circled for hours over the airport doing bump and runs trying to unjam the landing gear. Finally, faced with running out of fuel
or going for a landing, the pilot decided to land. We watched on live TV. The approach....the decent....and then....the landing! He made it! We
errupted in applause and shouts of "Bravo!!!". Then I realized that the passengers were also watching live news of this very event IN THE PLANE!!!
Imagine being a passenger and watching on TV what could be your last few seconds on earth!
It's the same thing...we are all passengers on this earth, and now we watch everyday for the latest news and photos and feeds and tweets and posts on
boards for some detail of what could most certainly be our collective demise...whether through war or toxicity....and yet ever on the look out for
some evidence of determined hope. Ever waiting to errupt in applause and shout "Bravo!" to the voice of reason in it's boldness.
