I have more time to read or listen to news on weekends. I see something that is experienced by almost everyone in different parts of the world: Despair. Yet, hope is the most important emotion that keeps us alive and enables us to proceed. Hope is exactly what we need right now.
Thus, I would like to share the words of Bertrand Russell. Don’t you think they also make sense today?
“Get Rid of Despair:
Freedom of opinion and conscience have never been so worthwhile in any age of the history. We must all try harder to reach a higher goal than today. Mankind must have a strong will against a system that creates oppression, injustice and poverty. We must be more vigilant, more dynamic and more powerful. We must defy injustice, groundless hostilities, dishonesty, and oppression. To be strong and smart in the face of a disaster, we must remember what is good and bad. The way to get rid of despair: To remember, to broaden our horizons, to try to see and appraise what is good, rather than the bad.”
