I've had such a sinking feeling that won't go away lately. "This too shall pass" doesn't cut it. 'Cause it doesn't pass!

Over 100,000 dead (like a whole city of people that celebrated last New Year's Eve suddenly evaporated - compare that to Hiroshima [96K+] or Vietnam [53K+] or the entire population of places like Peoria, IL - the numbers don't tell the story until names and the value of humanity is remembered.)

Unemployment pushing 20%, the worst since the Great Depression. The US pulling out of the WHO in the middle of a pandemic. Starting a trade war with China due to Hong Kong (when the measures mean nothing, since trade with HK was a measly $5.3B last year.) Ceding geopolitical space to China in the South Pacific and the South China Sea. Losing allies from Asia to Europe to even our neighbors in the Americas...

The derision of NATO and the world community. The end of Pax Americana of 70 years that we founded.

And now a country up in flames, 30 cities under curfew, a society spontaneously combusting due to self immolation. I could go on...

Any of these factors in isolation would cause an upheaval in moral consciousness, a deep introspection and a reorganization of society itself. Like the end of the Roman Empire or the end of WWII. Yet, have we forgotten how to think?

America has gone from being the bread basket of the world to the basket case of the world.

What happened to the leader of the free world, the land of liberty, ideas and HOPE?

Unless you're living under a rock, that leader has become a laughingstock, from invoking reactions of widened eyes and the bowing of heads in respect... to the rolling of eyes and the shrugging of shoulders in disbelief - in 4 years.

What happened to you, America?
