How we go about solving the major issues of the day, that is, if we can solve these issues at all, and how future generations will look back on our actions from a clear vantage point in the future, should be something we must factor into our discussions and solutions. We can’t continue to do what we’ve done all too often—be so consumed by our own interests and needs that our actions jeopardize the welfare of the communities and country we all profess to cherish. The house is beginning to crumble from the weight we’ve placed on it and we better all realize our personal self interests need to be kept in check. Its time we ALL chipped in carried the load or I fear our near term victories may become very hollow victories in the long term.
