Truth and Justice Will Prevail

I've been thinking about all of the horrible things happening in the world recently. The Bush Administration's trampling of civil liberties and human rights. The demonization of certain ethnic populations, the name-calling - labeling the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps as 'terroristic.' It's down-right scary and disturbing.

And on top of all the oppressive political violence you can add the environmental problems we face. And the American Media just doesn't want to give it the time of day. Predictions are for a significant rise in sea-level over the next 100 years. Many species are suffering declines in population. More and more species go extinct every day. Humanity is tossing the natural environment out of balance. And the consequences could be quite severe. One bright side to this phenomenon is that our own actions will likely result in the limitation of future success - as the natural environment, upon which humanity depends, systematically becomes less and less able to accommodate humanity's wants and needs...

But, I think that ultimately, truth and justice and peace, and what is good will prevail.

Let's go forward into tomorrow and all tomorrow's with inspiration in our hearts, as well as inspiration to share with others, to keep fighting the good fight - to keep the goal of a better world, of better selves, better families, better neighborhoods, better relationships...alive and high in our hearts.
