This is the essential question. I have found myself in this quandary of consciousness, stunned and disheartened. Thank you for expressing our ethical dilemma in such a personal, realistic, conscientious context. It seems to me that international, interdisciplinary leadership is required to transform fear-induced dehumanization and violence into reverence-inspired compassion and cooperation. As humanity is capable of both, the pivotal factor is sustained ethical leadership. Your sincere eloquence is an empowering message for all of us.
