Is there any emotion more fundamentally human than hope?
On this eve of a new year, I want to think more about the ways we have advanced and grown in our humanity, than our competitive, destructive violence. There has actually been good news this year, and there are ways in which each of us can help our sisters and brothers, as well as the planet. Let's concentrate on those, and on our capacity to keep looking forward in spite of everything.
Happy New Year to you all, and perhaps, demain sera différent.*
