There Is Always Hope
On Those Down Days Remember
There Is Always Hope – It is not possible to be an animal activist and not suffer from bouts of soul destroying despair. On those day when I think I can no longer bear to see more examples of deliberate human depravity – I remember that the polar opposite of cruelty is kindness.
I think of the many shining examples of generosity – kindness – mercy and love that go un-noticed every day all over the world. I think of the deep and abiding goodness that resides in the human soul and I know that this power can displace all that is evil.
There is nothing that lifts my soul like music and when I hear Amazing Grace performed – I have complete faith that we will eventually defeat cruelty – intolerance – unkindness – anger and hatred. It is not possible that human beings who can evoke this kind of emotional beauty cannot then tackle the ills of the world. And so I live knowing that – “There Is Always Hope”.
This too shall pass …
