I am writing this here because I'd like the conversation to be civil and then, too, more personal to who we are as individuals.
Each day, we see the mess in Korea getting worse. Each day 'seems' to bring us closer to what COULD be the start of a Pacific/Asian war that would
make everything since WW2 look like summer camp.
Many of us have children... some of us have kids in the service. Some of us are in the service ourselves.
We also have a common thread that runs through every generation before us and now, after we look back, we no longer have to wonder much on how it felt
to live in days just before the world went to hell in a hand-basket. Our parents and grandparents that saw WW2, saw the days leading up to it... just
as we may be seeing the same thing today.
The purpose of this post is to get honest, from-the-heart feelings about the world around us and what lies ahead. I won't try to convince anyone to
exclude politics but I do feel that it would work better without them.
My concern is that there are so many places and people and nations today on the verge of eruption, that no one person or nation can correct the
situation. In sum, we are headed for darker days and that we should turn inward... to our families, friends and loved ones for, what is ahead.
It has always been the steel of our country (and many others), to draw close when things got tough.
Do you have concerns? Do you speak to your family and friends about the world around us?
I do... though I must admit, they tend to shrug most of it off. Whether for comfort or just a wish for it to all go away... I do not yet know.
