I'm on the fence about it. Isn't my decision all the same. Weighing the pros and the cons and the evens and odds and they're all adding up to a fixed game. We should get out while the getting is still good enough to get on with our lives. You can shut out the daylight until we are ready to go. I'm ready to go as soon asn the sunshine has dropped down below the horizon and we can move without attracting attention. I admit I'm surprised just a bit by the turnout. I had no idea we felt so strongly. One way or another and we're all here to gether and waiting, and the attention is on me. Did I fail to mention that I'm on the fence? Dont' know which way is up and I'm losing my focus, grasping for truth in this mess. Can't trust the sources that flood all the papers and TVs and magazines and internets. Is it foolish to think that a straight answer even exists?
