Watching the events unfold around the world: revolution in Libya, Egypt, Tunisia, Yemen, Bahrain; earthquakes and tsunami in Japan and New Zealand, all paralleling the footsteps of demonstrations in London, in Italy, and Wisconsin. I'm overwhelmed and saddened by the depth of the tragedies- the lives lost, the sacrifices made. Each day seems to bring more tragedy and upheaval, and I have to wonder how we humans will survive. I hope we can find the strength to carry on, to change and grow and learn from our massive mistakes and lapses in judgement. I know we have the tools. I pray we have the will to succeed.
