Together We Are Strong

Gemeinsam sind wir stark! Auf Englisch:Together we are strong! While this maxim may sometimes be true, we must be careful that we are struggling for the right things as we celebrate our strength. It's like saying "Change is Good!"---Really? All change? A happy, prosperous family suddenly thrown into poverty because of a loss of a job during a country-wide depression? That's a change. Is that good? Together we are strong---but our very strength could carry us right into the rocks that prudence and sensibility would have bid us avoid. Witness the boat in this picture from Cathcon. It seems to have run aground, a victim of the very strength of those attempting to steer it. And since he was standing at the rear of the boat, perhaps the priest should have delivered a stern warning.
