Humanist Thought of the Week: Feb 19 2008

Hope Springs Eternal

Hope is a wonderful thing.

It allows us to envision a different and hopefully better future.

And because we can imagine it, we can take action to achieve it.

Hope for a better future is a central element of the Humanist mindset.

We don’t have to accept the status quo.

It might be difficult to achieve a better future, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try.

We have a responsibility to try.

While we might not be able to make this a world in which no one suffers.

We can at least reduce the number of people who suffer.

And, if we don’t at least try, how can we call ourselves moral?
