IT'S WHAT WE CHOOSE TO EMPHASIZE ...

"To be hopeful in bad times is not just foolishly romantic. It is based on


the fact that human history is a history not only of cruelty, but also of


compassion, sacrifice, courage, kindness. What we choose to emphasize in


this complex history will determine our lives. If we see only the worst, it


destroys our capacity to do something. If we remember those times and


places - and there are so many - where people have behaved magnificently,


this gives us the energy to act, and at least the possibility of sending


this spinning top of a world in a different direction. And if we do act, in


however small a way, we don't have to wait for some grand utopian future.


The future is an infinite succession of presents, and to live now as we


think human beings should live, in defiance of all that is bad around us,


is itself a marvelous victory." Howard Zinn
