With the abundance of facts, figures, and realities we have learned about this semester, is it possible to still have hope for our future and our children’s future? I think it depends on who you ask. A pessimist is going to give you a different answer than an optimist.

I like to consider myself an optimist and I definitely have hope for the future.┬áBut a better future isn’t going to come easily. Just because we now know about this stuff, doesn’t mean it’s going to magically go away. It’s time for action.
