Far be it from me to act as peacemaker. BUT: Can we all...oldies, newbies, cognoscenti, neophytes, meanies, downtrodden, up-raters, down-raters, non-raters, megaposters, lurkers, wearers of big girl panties and sporters of thongs... Call a temporary cessation of hostilities. Establish a demilitarized zone. Just for a little while. Maybe a day while we lick our collective wounds and start to try to heal our psyches...and reflect on the real stuff that we all share...the fear, the longing for a safe zone, the realization that sometimes the horrific is real, and that sometimes hope is all we have. We've learned of the loss of a young life. For just a bit...can we all leave off?
