Even as our world speeds into a most uncertain future, I find myself overwhelmingly optimistic. Overall, I believe that Love will lead us all through whatever darkness lays ahead. Not only the Love of one for another, but a genuine Love for all people, will be our salvation. For with Love we find compassion and forgiveness with a measure of mercy that will guide us all out of darkness. I am sure all of us can find reasons to Hate, but can we find the courage to Love.
