'On Holocaust Remembrance Day, we ought to discuss our ability to uproot the seeds of intolerance, violence, self-destruction and moral deterioration,' says Maj. Gen. Yair Golan.23:41 04.05.16 | 0 comments
Had the world blown up in the Cuban Missile Crisis one of the few US targets certain to have been struck would have been NY city. One of the 'evacuation' routes was up Route 15 and through Sussex County NJ. There was a Sussex Squadron of the Civil Air Patrol which was a dozen or so kid and fewer adults. There were other Civil Defense people, a hospital or two and some fired departments. We were to meet the millions of fleeing victims of the thermonuclear attack on NYC, and perform triage. . . This was insanity that even a kid could see for what it was. Haiti has nothing with which to cope with this disaster. Haiti is supine, destroyed, and dependent upon all the rest of us. All the rest of humanity. This, as the Tsunami was, a test of our humanity. It is also a chance to show that humans are greater than the monsters who cause wars. So, what is the question? Do we help, or do we accuse everyone else of not helping enough?
