RE: 'Father of Valium' dead at 97
Even after a lifetime of consoling victims of tornandos, fire, and hurricane, I know how difficult, if not impossible, it will be for me to put into words anything that can console you in this hour of your supreme sadness, Germanstar. I can only say, I am very sorry for you.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
