As we struggle with defining what course of action to take...if any, those of us so doing do not need to come up with an answer, any answer, in any set period of
time. The truth may be that we don't KNOW what to do. That wouldn't be surprising and it doesn't mean therefore that there isn't anything which CAN be done...or
that we are insincere or incapable.
Intelligence is figuring out what you have to do, when you don't know what to do. I'm not certain of anything. I don't even know if these monuments, if all this writing,
all these discussions...if picketing the Gassman and Kaiser...if any of it is going to accomplish anything.
Something tells me something HAS to be done. At the same time I don't want to do anything just to do something. I don't really know what to do...except I know
that often it is by trying, and failing, and learning from failure, that you advance. Nothing is such a failure that you can't profit by it.
