"No pessimist ever discovered the secrets of the stars,
or sailed to an uncharted land,
or opened a new heaven to the human spirit."
~ Helen Keller
And, no pessimist can truly touch her corner of the world and accomplish that good for which she is capable and destined. Today I set my heart and mind to optimism and faith that every day we can create moments of heaven on earth in our up-side-down world. Giving into pessimism now means sure defeat ... for ourselves and our families, for our neighbours, for those whose faces of lost dreams stare back at us across cities, oceans, and continents.
We keep our home fires burning and we encourage each other to arise from the depression and prostration in which circumstances are keeping us. We arise and shine in our new day and gain confidence that even smallest gestures shift the atmosphere and open windows for light to stream in.
