Discovery's Safe - Whew!

I let out a deep sigh of relief when the shuttle touched down this morning; though, I was briefly surprised at the degree to which I had been concerned.

Then it occurred to me I had felt much the same way the other day when I heard the Russian rescue submarine had been freed from the ocean floor.

I think in both cases I was conscious on some level that my fellow human beings were out, or down, there on the edge of the survival envelope, and I cared. Seems like we (I) could do more to exploit this reflexive empathy for each other. Hmmm...
