We take our nation’s Critical Infrastructure for granted every single day. That’s as it should be. We should be too busy living our lives – doing good work, loving our loved ones, watching ESPN, etc. – to be impressed every time the lights come on when we flick a switch, or when the subway drops us off at our destination on time, or when county road crews use their snow plows to clear our streets, or when municipal water departments make our faucets flow.
After all, its called infrastructure for a reason. We only take notice of it when it lets us down.
