Today is a day I thought I would never feel,

Last edited Fri Jan 31, 2020, 07:45 PM - Edit history (1)

A day worse than 9/11, I never thought I could could feel worse for our country as that day. And yet I do, and I can only surmise that there is no shock, suddenness, or how an event just happened out of the blue to numb you in a way. I just realized we have been watching this attack for months, in slow motion, with no way to stop the damage. Many more people could die from today ( and may have already) than 9/11. I just told Mrs K..we are 60 years old and for the first time in my life, I'm not sure we are number 1 anymore.

Hopefully we can rebuild something meaningful to bring memory to this day in history.

We will fight,we will rebuild, I just hope it is not too late.

1. So that's what I'm feeling

It's been difficult to identify. But you are right. It is worse than 9/11, without a doubt because we have been attacked from within and with CSPAN chronicling it all.

I will need some time to grieve for my country before I get up and fight another day.

Deeply sad. Horrifying. Self inflicted wounds.

4. yeah, I've been wondering whether it's worse to be attacked from without or within

I was thinking about what it must have felt like in the run-ups to the world wars, seeing something coming inexorably at you and being helpless to stop it. (We're even looking at the deaths of millions, or even the death of the human race, if the GOP continues to be in power and continues to ignore the climate emergency.)

It's probably more terrifying to be attacked by another country, but it just feels so soul-crushing to be attacked by our own government.

2. Deeply sad here.

Hoping against hope that something gives this weekend. America is in trouble.

6. This was always going to be the result...

and November was always going to be the only realistic solution to getting rid of Trump.

The GOP followed the script, to a T. All of the "concern" was just for show. Always is.
