The Way Ahead

 
When the way ahead seems uncertain, when the news is mostly negative, when we feel powerless to effect change, it is good to remember that we are hardly alone.  Not just other people the world over, but all the generations of people who have ever lived have been through times when the future was uncertain, when the news was mostly negative, when they felt powerless to change their future.  Those with hope had better odds of surviving, it seems.  From the Talmud we hear,

Do not be daunted by the enormity of the world’s grief.  Do justly, now.  Love mercy, now.  Walk humbly, now.  You are not obligated to complete the work, but neither are you free to abandon it.
