I have heard all my life that I am an idealist and an optimist. Sometimes I hear in that, that I am naive in some way. I choose to see the world filled with people striving to find ways to connect and care for one another. I heard once that the most radical thing that you can do is be an optimist! I hope this blog inspires others to reduce the feelings of hopelessness that is often present in the face of so many world issues. One person's actions really matters!
