I think we should check. This is the time to reaffirm ourselves spiritually or mentally. At least, call your love ones and tell them you were thinking of them. You can say, "I figured you would have been taken, I guess it didn't happen. So, how's everything going for you?".
But in the end it comes to this: We thought about it. We questioned, laughed, sometimes nervously, but still in the back of our minds thought about it and our place in the universe.
At a minimum for a short time we had something we could all come together and talk about without screaming and rending our clothes. To be as one.
It might have been a little rapture after all.
