Stand Tall. Remain Hopeful.

Hope is not the conviction that something will turn out well, but the certainty that something makes sense regardless of how it turns out. Vaclav Havel.


These are challenging times. There is a host of pressing issues that need addressing.

There are no simple answers. No easy, quick fixes: There is the COVID-19 pandemic, climate change, economic disruption and the widening disparity, racial inequality, the advance of AI and globalization. Yikes!

In spite of it all, though, as we head into 2022, we must not succumb to the siren calls of fear, doubt and pessimism.

Pessimists, by nature, are destructive, unsure of their abilities, closed to the new ideas and disrespectful of others. They foster weakness and chaos.

Optimists, on the other hand, are builders. They are clear-eyed, confident of their own abilities, inclusive, creative, caring of others and unafraid of the future.

Above all, they always remain HOPEFUL.

Stay safe. Stay strong. Stay connected. 

I hope to see you back here again soon. As always, thanks for reading me.
