Questions for the Millennium

Was the hate always lurking under the surface?
Was division buried where no one could clearly see?
Was the intolerance deeper than it seemed?

Is this really who we are?
Are these really our beliefs?
Is this really what most of us want?
Is this really how most of us feel?

Why can’t I sleep?
Will our democracy survive?
Will the scolding of foreign heads of state evolve into calling up the troops?
Will some brave and ethical statesman finally stand up and say enough?
Will that start an avalanche of sensible thought and action?

Will there be a day when Colbert’s late night jokes can be about something else?

Or a day when the biggest concern is whether or not tonight’s episode of the Big Bang Theory is new or a re-run.

    I often find myself asking the same questions. What’s especially sad is that although you wrote these words over two years ago, you could have as easily written them today. Except, as much as I love the show, I’ve had to mostly stop watching Colbert. Too much too close to bedtime, I think.
