Reasons to Hope
This is an excerpt from a newsletter we sent in February of 2022. It seemed appropriate to share again, given everything that has been happening in the world.
It seems there is no relenting to the challenges our world faces. The pandemic, natural disasters, and world conflicts seem never-ending. While these challenges can and sometimes do bring out the worst in us, they can also serve as a means to bring out the best.
We see this happen time and again throughout history, and it’s been the same story these last two years - we’ve seen the worst to be sure, but we’ve also witnessed the best. The negative social narratives and headlines make it difficult to see, but when you choose to see good - it's all around you.
The fact that in the face of extreme difficulty, illness, war, and death people can still be good, do good, choose love over hate, goodness over evil, and kindness over malice is a great reason to hope that these challenges will pass. Humans the world over will seek goodness and peace - and while we won’t eradicate evil completely, the light will always dispel the darkness.
We believe this to be true and have it reaffirmed as we interact with all of you. Our community Facebook group has been fantastic in showing us the goodness that exists in the world. If you want to be part of a community of people choosing to see the good, I highly recommend joining our Facebook group.
