“I wish it need not have happened in my time," said Frodo.
"So do I," said Gandalf, "and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us."

The family and friends with which I'm surrounded are active in their beliefs, education, and interests.  The conscience of each has been tempered over time in the fire of their experience and discovery, not the hamster wheel of pop culture.

Ancestors are watching.  Children are watching. 

No capitulation here.

Thanks, Kurt.
