A Little Note on Hope and Change


Posted on : 11:00 AM | By : Anonymous | In : , ,

Watched the election last night via the internet (no cable), and I can't say that I'm unhappy, and I'll leave it at that.  What struck me is the hope that is pegged on a human being, no matter who is supported or what party is involved.  All the people who made their way to vote simply wanted one thing: to feel safe.

I see a lot of worry in the world.  This worry is for the future, for the economy, for global diplomacy.  Who the US elects as president will affect everyone, but what affects everyone even more is what is happening in our own families, and in our own hearts.  The key word of this whole fiasco was change, but change only comes from within.

Helen Keller once said, "The heresy of one age becomes the orthodoxy of the next."  I hope that we keep questioning, rather than becoming too comfortable in a solution.  Let us not become satisfied with mediocre, and really demand a better day.

"The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers." - M. Scott Peck
