  •  Mike, you couldn't be more right. (none)
    Rudyard Kipling making the same point more poetically but no more convincingly:

    If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
    And treat those two impostors just the same;
    If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
    Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
    Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
    And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools

    Those last two lines just cut right to the core of this - so many of us gave our LIVES to this for the last 18 months and yesterday we watched it all get broken.  We can spend today being bummed out about it, but tomorrow those of us with even an ounce of backbone will stoop, pick up our worn out tools and get back to work.
