Of course there is hope! It is just a bitter pill to swallow when we realize that we have enemies that never seem to stop. My grandparents had it worse, they escpaped Hitler AND Stalin. My parents had it worse in the Great Depression. Things are going down a bit, but we still have a great deal of power.
We will survive this. We will have to re-learn the lessons of our forefathers though.
The best remedy for that ‘drowned in scotch’ feeling is to go after them. :)
Never Give Up. Never Become Silent. Even if one person has not much power or is even an invalid or other frailties, we can each do SOMETHING. Fighting spirit is what is needed.
Your grandparents went after the gestapo and the KGB. We don’t have an “enemy,” per se. We go after cops or Feds, and we get dead or thrown in jail.
Someone once said that to become a warrior, you have to accept that you’re already dead. I’ve accepted that. When does the fighting start?
