Recently, I read of a certain police officer who found himself in the midst of a gun fight, on a city street. His reaction was to stand in the middle of the avenue and direct imaginary traffic, as the gunfire raged. He was not used to, nor did he anticipate the disturbing crisis that suddenly engulfed him. The flow of events was abnormal to him. His solution was to find what was normal, resort to what he was prepared, even conditioned to do, and spring to public service.
Yesterday’s elections show America’s voters and our candidates springing to public service. The results were beneficial. So is efficient traffic management.
We need to level with each other about the Soft War on America. We need those who are chosen to serve the public trust to seek out and tell our Citizenry the whole truth, and act upon it, or the weapons aimed at us will kill us.
