This is the world today. Filled with darkness and rage. The patches of green grass prove there is still hope for us. There is still good among the evil. The pollution puffs like a reminder that it will take all of us to create change. Those that came before us were put here to empower us, just as we are to empower the next generation. It heavies my heart to know we have allowed this and become desensitize to all that is around us. The clouds will open, the sun will break through and the glistening streaks of light will guide us.
