There is always hope

This is going to be fairly short, I think, because I’m still absolutely amazed at the events that have unfolded over the last 24 hours, and I’m not yet sure how capable I am of forming a coherent thought.  I had a low (a friend was killed in a motorcycle accident), and then an extreme and unexpected high (Anne Rice read my blog and shared it with the fans of her Facebook page).  To tell the truth, over the past few years I’d begun to become disenchanted, both with humankind in general and with Christians.  My exhortations to Christians that we need to break our silence and lend a hand to the downtrodden had either seemingly gone unnoticed, or caused some to become defensive, and when one hits a wall of defensive silence too many times, it becomes an especially cumbersome load to bear.

But then… I rediscovered that there are many out there, both atheist and Christian and everything in between, who believe the same way I do, that to turn a blind eye to injustice is the worst crime, and an even worse crime in many ways than the injustice itself.  Discovering so many people who view life that way has bolstered me, and it reminded me once again that there is always hope.

I cannot possibly thank everyone enough, but even so, thank you all for giving me this encouragement, and for this much-needed reminder.

  1. We’re a rare breed but hopefully not too few and far between that we can’t make a difference. As long as we have the strength and confidence to speak openly, we can continue to push for change.

    • Exactly… and I hope we’re not too rare!
