    Some try to build the future they want within themselves and hope the world catches up.  Some hide from news media and hope that Obama is the person who can handle this mess.

    I can't hide as I have an overinflated sense of responsibility.  The twelve steps of AA include the statement "accept what you cannot change" and obviously we cannot change the entire system overnight.  But I think we need to be alert to those moments when we can make a difference.  Like the diarist says we need to look squarely in the face of those brave men and women who put it all on the line for us and thank them.  And, if we have it in us, challenge those who would use them for an unholy purpose.  Who among us believes that Iraq was not about oil and about those corporations who lusted after that oil?  Anybody?
