It seems that I am thinking most about hope right now...
Hope for the changes in government that will help the people of so many countries.
Hope that people will find their own honesty, honor and integrity with each other and with Nature.
Hope that the greed and persecution which I see shifts to something healthier with more understanding and compassion.
Hope that health things come out well.
Hope that personal things shift for the best for myself and others.
Hope that we can find compromise within ourselves for the greatest good for ALL - that isn't just for people.
So I will say that hope is a strong thing - not a thing of weakness. It is easy to loose sight of why we need to hope. Because to hope means we know there is a better way that can happen, and that we can be a part of if we try. And without hope there is just tedium, depression and pain. That is not the life I want to see anyone or anything lead.
Yes, we need to change. Yes, I think we can. In fact I am very much looking forward to it.
