Most of us have no emotional response left. We watched in horror as the planes hit the Twin Towers. We watched in disbelief as our Country was dragged into an immoral War. We watched with consternation as the War took the lives of Iraqi children like a reaper on a rampage (and, yes, our own children too). What do we have left in watching the devastation that is NOLA and the Gulf Coast? Nothing, that's what.
Its not that we got something wrong when it comes to children, we've got everything wrong. From health care to education, from child care to jobs, we are in deep trouble. We need strong leaders. We've been dealt wimps. Game. Match. Set.
History will deal us another hand soon. God forbid his name is not Josef, Benito or Adolph.
