what keeps us from falling down?

“Read one newspaper daily (the morning edition
is the best
for by evening you now that you at least
have lived through another day)
and let the disasters, the unbelievable
yet approved decisions
soak in.

I don't need to name the countries, 
ours among them.

What keeps us from falling down, our faces
to the ground; ashamed, ashamed?” 

Mary Oliver, A Thousand Mornings
