There are some very good comments here about picking ourselves up and not giving up - and of course that is the thing for all of us to do. Take a few days and get some distance from the shock.
I'd like to add something into the mix that I have not yet seen presented.
Our young men and women in the military face greater challenges and danger than the rest of us ever come close to facing. They don't give up when the going gets tough. They band together and defeat the foe, time and time again as we have done for hundreds of years under circumstances that make ours laughable by comparison.
So, take a deep breath, thank God that you are still alive to enjoy another day, lick your wounds and move ahead with purpose.
Stay strong for all the Patriots who came before you, for the ones fighting today, and for those yet to come.
Grow a pair, don't give up and allow evil to win.
I have three grandchildren. When I see them next at Thanksgiving I will encourage each of them NEVER to fight inthis country’s military - either as volunteers or if conscripted. In the latter case, they should ex-patriate.
There was a time when I thought our country was worth fighting and dying for. No more. We have thoroughly disrespected our military.
When the Vice Presidential candidate says to the father of a murdered Seal that “his balls must have been the size of cueballs” and that canddiate is re-elected to office, no one should ever consider serving our country in the military. The people do not deserve the kind of loyalty and bravery they give. Sorry, but I have reached my limits. This nation has made its choice. It’s over.
“So, take a deep breath, thank God that you are still alive to enjoy another day, lick your wounds and move ahead with purpose.

Well said, Bob.
Buffalo Bob, beautifully written post. We can’t give up for the sake of our children and grandchildren. I also love the point another poster made about watching where our money is spent. No more spent by me for Hollywood liberals in movie attendance. I will shop at Lowes, not Home Depot, as I think their management is more conservative. Chick Fil A will get any $ I spend on fast food. We can hurt these uber liberal companies where it hurts. I am more determined to do what I can to turn this country around, not less.
