The existence of serious problems and dangers in our world may lead us to feel that things are going downhill. But despite continuing difficulties, in many respects our ancestors’ prayers are being answered. We should not fail to notice and appreciate the fact.
Centering Thought: If you had to choose a moment in history to be born, and you did not know ahead of time who you would be — … whether you were going to be born into a wealthy family or a poor family, what country you’d be born in, whether you were going to be a man or a woman… — you’d choose now. – Barack Obama, 2016
