Spring is a wonderful promise of renewal, and with that promise comes the hope of improvement. I am going to take a leap of faith and decide to believe that we are strong enough to find our way out of the crisis our world finds itself in. Human beings have the capacity for great kindness, true inspiration, and sustained labor, and that capacity is growing. I rely on those strengths to save us. There is so much turmoil across the globe right now, and it takes vision and faith to see a peaceful resolution. But I'm going to believe in that possibility---dimly seen, frequently obscured, but shining off in the distance nevertheless---with all my heart.
