Just some brief thoughts I jotted down at 6 A.M.
         I often wonder if we as a species actually deserve to inhabit this Earth.  We fight, steal, and are capable of subjecting our fellow man to unimaginable cruelties.  Violence is present in nature, but we are king when it comes to the atrocious way in which it is committed.

         One of the most frustrating things for me is knowing that there are good people in this world.  In fact I believe the vast majority of us are good, yet the world’s leadership is scattered with petulant children and those that would serve themselves rather than the people who trusted them with their post. 

         Many things are broken in this world and I just don’t know if we have the courage and determination to fix them.  Hunger, poor education, conflict, and the violation of personal rights.  The world can be relieved of all these plagues as long as there’s an informed and determined populace out there to fight them.  We are capable of so much, yet we seem to achieve so little.  I think it’s time that changed.  I think it’s time to rise up out of the ashes of our failures and reshape this world into our home rather than our battlefield. 

         There will be a day when all who read this are long gone and our posterity won’t judge us on what we wanted to achieve, but what we accomplished.
