All of us have experienced a litany of emotions. Whether it would be shock, disbelief and horror, followed by grief, mourning and anger. All of us indeed have lost a lot. We have lost thousands of lives. We have lost some of our self confidence. We have lost some of our freedom and, certainly, we have lost a way of life.
The President of the United States has said it is time to go back to work and so, despite a heavy heart, baseball gets up out of the dirt, brushes itself off, and will follow his command hoping in some small way to inspire the nation to do the same.
All of the ballplayers in the major leagues are wearing the American flag. Out of patriotism, yes. Out of love of country, yes. But more so, out of duty and courage and to pronounce a national firmness of will.
God bless us in our efforts. God bless America.
