This video spoke to me, about all that is wrong with the world and how much better it could be. I am a pacifist, but the call to fight for goodness still resonates.
Years ago, I received a wonderful book For This One Hour, from my father. It’s a first edition, published in 1969, and has separate sections for being Grateful, Cheerful, Optimistic, Unselfish, Forgiving, and Generous; for spending Time in Prayer, looking for the Best in Others, helping to Make Someone Happy, and living in the Present.
It’s a wonderful source of inspiration to me, and has been for many years.
Today, with so much negativity in the world, I thought I would share one of my favorite passages, the Creed for Optimists: 10 simple things we can all strive to do for ourselves and our world to make both better.
–Christian D. Larsen, from For This One Hour, compiled by William Arthur Ward, copyright 1969, Droke House publishers
