Incredible reports of destruction coming in from Indian quake
AP is now reporting it as a 7.6 quake, which would make it massive beyond belief. 20,000 feared dead, maybe more. Tsunamis, hurricanes, quakes - this keeps up I'm liable to start believing Jesus really is coming back.
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.
