Optimistic about the future

I was asked recently how I could possibly be optimistic about the future of America. After a brief period of reflection I responded with the words of Winston Churchill”After trying all the wrong things Americans always get it right.”This land encouraged slavery for years and finally rose to end this abomination.Women were seen as property and refused the right to vote. America has supported so many rigid social taboos that have limited the search for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,. However at some point in time Americans deal with the tough issues despite all of the failures and roadblocks. Storm Sandy has awakened us to the reality of climate change and we can no longer ignore the need for radical alterations in education and immigration reform. We may be late to the party, but the beauty of this nation is that at some point we pony up and make the tough choices.
