A limited number of movies center around a story about a small innocent kid and his encounter with a brutish, brash bully. In real life, the outcome is predictable and depressing. The child gets intimidated and emotionally damaged. In the movies, the outcome is that the bully gets a taste of his own medicine and cowers into retreat. These feel good flicks are rare, and stories like this are nearly extinct in real life, but planning and fate can redirect the outcome into a victory for the underdog. When the bully (U.S.) overreached its authority and flat out stole the sunshine from its northern neighbor, a series of organized events and dedication came to the rescue. After the carnage of war is over, and mothers accept that their child is now a red protein splash on a battlefield, only then does civility get inserted back into the neural pathways. The Canadians, utilizing tenacity, cleverness, and the old tactic of stalling authority figures by bribing them with donuts (cash), resulted in the innocent child attaining victory over the big, bad bully. Once the momentum was swung to the side of the underdog, bystanders leapt in and assured a positive outcome for the violated victim. At times, humans can astonish others with acts of gumption and courage that will net compassion from others. With the will to live heavily implanted in the mettle of men, intelligent, yet bold, acts can sway an undesirable outcome into a favorable fate. As the US saw an avalanche of enemies fall upon them, they refrained from launching the end of mankind and elected to coexist. In the end, the world saw the horror of the weapons of the Cold War and elected to use them to undo the environment damage that they had caused to the atmosphere. Depleting the entire world’s stockpile of nuclear firecrackers to cleanse the planet of excess CO2, was a start in reversing the destructive human destiny. As a tribute when it was all over, humans everywhere ended their sentences with, EH?
