This moment in history is forcing us to make a big decision

Imagine for a moment that you’re the captain of a jetliner.
You have 155 people on board, you’ve just lifted off, and suddenly a flock of geese appears. The plane’s engines ingest too many birds and then permanently flame out.
There’s too little elevation to do much of anything. There’s no thrust and no way of returning to the airport you just left.
What do you do?
Well, if you’re Captain “Sully” Sullenberger you smoothly land that plane on a nearby river and calmly perform two full sweeps of the cabin to assure you’re last person off the plane, losing zero lives in the process.
An exciting story with a critical point: there are moments in life when you don’t have the luxury of doing nothing.
