87. I'm concerned about their exhaustion level, and their supply level.
However, their determination is so stoked, that I have no doubt they will persevere.

These things are typically 3 steps forward and 2 steps backward. Their strategy is to retreat when prudent, and come back to fight another day. It will continue this way for some time. (That doesn't make it less agonizing, but.....)

This is the difference between studying history, where we know the outcome, and aren't invested in the unfolding story so much, and LIVING history, where we don't know from minute to minute what is going to happen. Its agonizing and confronts us with a plethora of emotions.

I do have every confidence that the revolutionaries will prevail.
