It's so easy to read the news and get disheartened about our world, our species and our future. And today I had a shift in perspective that's given me hope. The older I get the more I realize hope is faith is salvation is happiness. So what did I realize? We've created republics, democracy, civil rights, suffrage, childrens rights, gay rights …and we keep moving forward. This is just a slice of the progress we've made as a species from the days of might makes right and the pure evil we commited upon each other. Yes, there's still evil in this world. But over time we've overcome and will continue to do so. As a whole. It's a great way to think of life.
