Is it too late?

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/opinion/article/is_it_too_late_20110105

In hindsight everyone will be able to point at this moment or that event and say: “There, then, that is when it went off the tracks.” This will be debated by others who will counter: “No, by then it was too far gone.” Still others would say: “That was a minor bump, there was still a chance to right the cart, to get it back on the road, to resume the project.” The incident is not necessarily a large event, the place not always monumental or even memorable. It is only in hindsight when it comes time to mourn or to write history that it is clarified.
