my motivation for the day

To be hopeful in bad times is not just foolishly romantic, it is based on the fact that human history is a history not only of cruelty but also of compassion, sacrifice, courage, and kindness. And if we do act, in however small a way, we don’t have to wait for some grand Utopian future– the future is an infinite succession of presents, and to live now, as we think human beings should live, in defiance of all that is bad around us is itself a marvelous victory.
[Howard Zinn]
