I am fundamentally an optimist. Whether that comes from nature or nurture, I cannot say. Part of being optimistic is keeping one’s head pointed toward the sun, one’s feet moving forward. There were many dark moments when my faith in humanity was sorely tested, but I would not and could not give myself up to despair. That way lays defeat and death.

We are a beacon of hope.
― from the vision statement of the Unitarian Church of Los Alamos
But aren’t we living in hopeless times?
Isn’t naive to talk about hope?
How could we possibly live up to our vision when times feel so hopeless? Where do we even begin?
