I mean, the last ten years have been friggin' nuts. It's one of those decades that will be remembered for a long, long time, like the 30s or 60s.

So, however things end up hammered out, the fact we were here for it must mean something. At the very least we can laud it over our grandchildren and talk about how bad we had it. So, there's that. However, if things begin to turn for the better, then we'll have feel good times. I guess, all in all, we certainly have built some character.

6. Most of us lived.
Some people died far from home.

Some people died fighting for their homes.

But there is something to be said for character. I have always been one.
:evilgrin:
