I listened to something that gave me hope the other day.
Chris Rock told the story of how the atrocities of George W. Bush paved way for Obama to become president. The destruction made it possible for the world to experience something miraculous.
Jokingly Chris Rock said that considering the current president it is only plausible that soon Jesus will return. Still. There is truth to the fact that progress often follow destruction.
Here is another example.
The second world war might be one of the darkest chapters in human history. But following it, one great woman was instrumental in permanently improving the world.
The woman was Eleanor Roosevelt and what she created as the chair of the United Nations Human Rights Commission was the The Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Words have power. Here are some words to remember.
Article 1.
All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.
