I'd like to think that our government has a plan for what it's doing.
But I know it hasn't.
I'd like to think that in their uncertainty they will ask for expert help.
But I know they won't.
I'd like to think that the government would seek to promote calm during the crisis we face.
But I know they're fuelling anger.
I'd like to think that in all the confusion good sense might prevail.
But I know we live in a post-rational world.
I'd like to think that all will eventually turn out well, whatever the government does.
But that means all I am left with is hope.
And hope is what I am sticking with.
