We just got word that the school district my wife works for is shutting down for almost two weeks, because a teacher (educated?), brought the swine flu to work as present for everyone else to share.
Hmmm. Sounds like the tubing trip I just paid $300 for is, well, going down the tubes.....
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.
