In fact, let' s face "reality" for what it really is: The more we live in love, the more we live in our hearts---in "polyanna" if you will---the more we are practicing the solution. Focus on the good and it will take over. It will heal the world of its malaise, the more we all come into our hearts. And in order to live in that heart, we have to feel it. In order to feel it, we have to trust it. And in order to trust it, we have to acknowledge it as real--penultimately real--and to stop laughing it off as stupidity. Frankly, hatred is stupidity. Think about it.

Keep the faith. Look to the good and we all will have strength. There you have it. We may live in dark times for a while but the pendulum will, eventually, swing back to the middle. Wait and see. Because you will see, whether you choose to believe it or not. And to live in fear is a choice. Let's all make the positive choice. The truth is positive, on a fundamental level. Let's not forget that, please.
