Henry Winkler meant well when he signaled via Twitter Saturday that it would take a “catastrophic event” to unite the nation again.
But some Twitter users reminded him that Covid-19, 9-11 and other disasters have been there and they have done just that.
“We are so divided as a country … only a catastrophic event, which makes us depend on each other, can bring us back together,” wrote the former Happy Days “Fonzie” actor.
We are so divided as a country … only a cataclysmic event, which makes us depend on each other again, can unite us again.

There is a global plague and the ocean is on fire and the infrastructure is collapsing and the autocracy is on the rise and violent insurgents stormed the Capitol and none of those cataclysmic events brought us together, so assume you know something new about UFOs and I’ll call you. one day

We just had a cataclysmic event. It did not work.

I totally understand @ hwinkler4realHe is overwhelmed, like I am, in the madness rampage in America that has threatened us all. This country has lost its mind and we run the risk that our children and grandchildren will suffer the consequences. Your point on imperfect work is actually spot on

The last one was 9/11 … I don’t think we should do that again

Millions of people died and are still dying from a global killer virus pandemic, as if how cataclysmic you are aiming for here anyway, you are starting to give off some serious Adrian Veight vibes here, please don’t do anything rash, Henry, I am. . begging you
