At War

On a dark and gloomy Friday afternoon, mother nature seems to be in tune with the atmosphere of the times.

It feels like war.

Last week, terrorists hijacked four aircrafts and crashed two of them into the World Trade Centre, one into the Pentagon, and the fourth, thankfully, into a corn field. Last night, the president of the United States, to the repeated standing  ovations of the congress, declared war on terrorists, and promised not to rest until that war was won.

People of my generation have not experienced a time of war first-hand. Regardless of the fact that the current situation  differs in many respects from conflicts that took place in the past, the effect on people seems to be the same.  People are anxious, apprehensive, and even terrified about the immediate and long-term future.

It has been many years since the world has had to live through the uncertainty that results from a time of conflict.  Let’s hope the storm clears soon.
