Shame to die now

I think it's a shame when anyone dies. For many, the death of someone leaves a hole, a void in their lives. In these times I believe dying is especially hard for some who will not know how things will turn out for the country and for the world. Perhaps I am presumptuous to think that people care that much. I find myself wondering if we as a country will get back to the days of the 50's and 60's, what Tom Brokaw speaks about as "the good old days". I just feel bad for those folks who pass away between now and the election. However, folks who do die their problems may be over and they no longer care what happens to the country and the world.

Like the fifteen minutes of fame folks say that everyone has a moment.  I wonder if we will know when and if it happens!  Will it be one of those wow it just happened or will it be many years later upon reflection that we will know that it happened and we were totally oblivious.
