As I wrote that title, I had to wonder, just for a moment, if it still should.
The answer in the end was emphatically, yes. Because I know that there is more good than bad out there. That kindness is contagious. There are times in our lives that we feel hopeless, that nothing will ever change or be right. But, that is just part of the human condition. The world does change, not always quickly and most assuredly not quietly. It's in our nature to want to see fairness in our communities. We want to feel that our families and friends are safe living their lives from day to day.
I posted recently a quote from Margaret Thatcher that said, "You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it."
The fight is what keeps us alive, it's what keeps us from being complacent. I am, for a lack of a better word, a humanist. I put humans needs and desires first. And without a shadow of a doubt, we are all human beings. Everyone has value and everyone deserves to be treated as such.
Take a moment and think before you speak, before you judge, before you let hate leave your mouth. I hope that the world keeps turning, that there are brighter days ahead. I have to hope the pain we go through will all be worth it.
