Tempted to spend today hiding under the bed. Hey, Americans, here's a thought, let's not kill anyone today unless they are running at you ready to do harm, hunh?
Just one damn day of saying "please" and "thank you" no matter who you are; just one damn day of not being crazy-mad, stupid or scared or clumsy, just one day of being fully aware how terribly, terribly fragile you and all the other walking bags of water around truly are, please? Just the one day?
The hotheads and halfwits of all stripes would love to push the rest of us right over the edge of civilization. Don't let them. Nobody wins when that happens.
