Quote of the Day — March 31, 2009

Good morning, Netizens...

Our Quote of the Day:

Storms make trees take deeper roots.

Dolly Parton

If what, as Dolly Parton states, is truthful, is it not plausible that despite our present economic hardship, our nation is merely being rebuilt and rethought into substantially stronger fare? Is it possible that as the storm passes, our economy if not our nation will be rebuilt with stronger roots, better fiscal wisdom and perhaps to reemerge as the world leader we have repeatedly stated we are?

Or, conversely, as we have seen throughout our history, when storms come, trees topple and fall, edifices are thrown to the ground and people's roots simply cease to exist. We have a clear choice between the acceptance of inevitable strengthening or abject failure.

Is how and when we make this decision determined largely by our faith in ourselves as a nation if not ourselves?
