Today at the pool during water aerobics a little 8-year old girl, a cutie with a great outgoing personality, engaged Susan and the rest of the small class in chatter. Mostly Susan. She was there for a swim meet with a whole bunch of other young kids.
I found myself getting angry at the thought that the world we're leaving these kids is going to be in ruins. By the time they get the age of members of the water aerobics class, if they live that long, what's going to be left? We seem absolutely hell-bent on destroying ourselves. I wonder if the whole human race will soon fit Hobbes' grim observation about the lives of human beings being "nasty, brutish, and short."
