Crises are by definition aberrations. They are an offense to normalcy. As one studies various personal and/or corporate catastrophes, it becomes apparent that they strike in the midst of the ordinary.
For me this brings a kind of fear mixed with awe. On any given day, one can wake up and begin the routine, never knowing, never sensing the impending assault.
How then should I live? Should I steel myself with a kind of deliberate oblivion or should I remain ready – always on the alert? Sometimes knowing, even if it is only that you do not know, is too much.
