Moments of assent and the necessity of fortitude

“Oh, you must see Manhattan before you die”, said G52. “We went there to shop and ended up looking at the people. Wow.”

We nodded in assent.

Then we saw the news on the TGV breaking the speed record.

“Oh, let us get out of here!”, said Jod. “Trains race at 575 km/h while here they are still trying to get buses on the road.”

I nodded in assent. Tiocfaidh ár lá.
