Stand Strong

Hope is definitely not the same thing as optimism. It is not the conviction that something will turn out well, but the certainty that somethings makes sense regardless of how it turns out. Vaclav Havel.

Life is a never ending series of choices, some easier, others not so much. We make them everyday. They affect every aspect of our lives. One of the most critical choices, I believe, is choosing whether to be an optimist or a pessimist.

Particularly at this moment in history. With our hearts and minds fixated on the events in Ukraine Vaclav Havel’s words read truer than ever.

These are perilous times. The challenges to the liberal, democratic order are many. Clearly there are a good many pressing issues that need addressing.

It is hard to stand strong, but it’s what we must do.

Stay safe. Stay strong. Stay determined..

I hope to see you back here soon.
