I turn off even the radio anymore. People cannot be as mean as they sound! Has the whole world gone mad? Accusing "the other side" of lies, greed and a false agenda of hope? It seems that way sometimes, but I know that is not always true. Like last week, when we took our son back to college we also attended the campus Mass. He goes to a secular school and yet at 5pm on a Sunday there were many many students at Mass. 18, 19, 20 21, 22 years old. Reverently reciting the prayers, singing the songs and receiving Holy Communion. No parents forcing them to go to church. Young beautiful souls worshipping at Mass because they wanted to. Such an inspiring sight to witness. That is hope for tomorrow and for the future.
Last night was our high school back to school night for the parents. The teachers informed us they want these students to succeed, in high school and in life, and they will do anything they can to help accomplish that goal. Give their time and energy and anything else it takes. They care! Not for a paycheck, status or whatever the media glorifies...they teach because they want our kids to be smarter and make the right choices and be better people. This is hope for the world.
Yes, I saw the goodness in the world. Guess all I really have to do is look.
