It's 2017, and I am as confused as ever. As a child, the future was synonymous with growth and prosperity. I was told that the future was the catalyst for Change. Change in technology, business, and overall humanity.
Over the last couple of years, I witnessed change with my own eyes. I served as a witness to the greatest leap in social change since the civil rights movement. Being part of a universal acceptance of global warming. I had grown to feel confident that we as global citizens were on the road to overall good. I do say with disclaimer, that this blog is not meant to be political, or lean to any particular political party.
That being said, I find it impossible to ignore that the road we are now on is taking us backwards. I feel that we have lost that thirst to push forward and better the world around us for future generations. I will not lose hope though. The reason for my continued optimism in a time that seems very bleak is that this new reality has inspired a global unity I have not seen in my lifetime. We have found our voice, and there are organizations out there that have a megaphone so your voice can be heard.
