I’m an optimist. I really am. I truly believe that eventually saner heads will prevail and much of the nonsense our world is going through these days will be swept away. Unfortunately, optimists like me sometimes get too optimistic. The rose-coloured glasses get a bit thick, and we lose perspective. So whenever I’m feeling a little more “sunshine and lollipops” than is actually healthy, I stop for a moment, give it three deep breaths and take a look around. It’s a great reality check, and it works every time.
But the more things change, the more they remain the same.
Aren’t these people going to feel foolish in 20 years?
