1. THE CALM Not a single visual of chest-beating or wild grief. Sorrow itself has been elevated. 2. THE DIGNITY Disciplined queues for water and groceries. Not a rough word or a crude gesture.3. THE ABILITY The incredible architects, for instance. Buildings swayed but didn’t fall.
4. THE GRACE People bought only what they needed for the present, so everybody could get something.
5. THE ORDER No looting in shops. No honking and no overtaking on the roads. Just understanding.
