I am writing this because I would like to put across something I was thinking about that I think is important and should be taken into deep consideration
in this current election and world situation.

I am not going to tell you who to vote for. That is not the point of this post. What I am going to tell you is to follow your hearts and do ONE thing.



CHOOSE HOPE.


A society that has lost its optimism is doomed. Without hope, we as human beings whither and die. So perhaps the one thing you can use to decide your vote is this: vote for the person who gives you the greatest sense of optimism. Vote for the one who has vision of a more just and hopeful society and world.


As a young boy, I watched astronauts walk on the moon. If you weren't alive back then, I cannot express to you the sense of optimism and positive energy that existed back then. We could and would do anything. We would go to the stars someday. The world was turbulent but was going to get better. Humanity would pull itself out of the darkness. We were starting to find our way as human beings. There was HOPE.


Now it seems that all that is fading away. War, corruption, materialism and greed are sapping the strength away from our optimism. We are getting used to a darker world that seems to get a little bit darker every day. We are killing our planet slowly but surely. We cannot continue on our present course.

Sometimes just a voice with an affirmation can change things. We need to be able to hope again. We need to know that there is at least a CHANCE that our children will at the very least do as well as we did and have a peaceful clean world to live in and have their children in.


You have to look deep into your hearts and decide who to vote for who will give us the best chance of that. Because we are truly at the crossroads. If we choose wrongly the consequences will be nothing less than disastrous. There may be no coming back.


Please pick someone who will set an optimistic tone for our country and the world.


CHOOSE HOPE.

Thanks.

I agree.

But in this day and age, "Hope" will probably get caught in a hotel room with hookers and small barnyard animals making a film that could never be shown in polite company.


I'd still choose Hope simply because it'd bother so many.

Hope is defined as anticipation the future will get better.

Man is on an inevitable journey towards extinction.

2017 will be an interesting year in the worst sense.

It doesn't get much more optimistic than "Make America Great Again."

Don't give up because it hasn't been achieved yet.

That is far from true.
'Hope' is the dark opposite of Faith!
'Hope' is the 'judgment' of 'that which is', finding it unacceptable, and desiring that 'your Will B Done', sometime...
It is antithetical to any spirituality.

Without (vain ignorant judgmental) 'hope', there is, perhaps, Love; Gratitude, Faith and the other Virtues.

"Be the change that you want to see!" rather than 'hoping' to find it, somehow, 'out there'.

On another note, if there is something with which you are uncomfortable, simply do nothing for long enough, and it will change/pass!
