"These things are very frightening, and we should never make a decision in the midst of fright, beyond dealing with the immediate emergency. Let's give us time to grieve the loss of a soldier. Give us time to grieve, in some ways, the loss of innocence, and then let us think about who it is that we want to be, as a society."
