The End of the End?

by Lorna Barrett / Lorraine Bartlett / L.L. Bartlett

At six o'clock this evening (and no one had said WHAT time zone that's supposed to be), the beginning of the end of the world is to start.

HOGWASH!

Glass-of-water I mean, honestly, why are there so many people willing to believe in the negative instead of the positive?

For most of my life I was a "glass half empty" kind of girl, but sometime in the recent past something has made me change my point of view.

A few years back, my husband gave me a book:  "Everything I Need To Know I Learned From Watching Star Trek."

There's a wonderfully positive message one can get from Star Trek.  That we are, for the most part, GOOD people.  That we CAN make life on Earth (and beyond) better IF we work together.  That as a people, we CAN overcome just about anything.  All we need to do is TRY.

StarTrekInsignia On Thursday, Ellery wrote about recycling and being less wasteful.  (Go Green!)  And we can do other things to make life here on Earth better.  Use less fossil fuels.  Give to charity.  Give the gift of our TIME to worthwhile projects.  And on and on.

I don't know about these naysayers, but at six o'clock this evening I'm going to hoist a glass and wish man(and woman)kind well.  We have a lot more to do...to accomplish...to make this world a better place to live...and beyond.

We can do it.  We've just got to be positive.

At least ... I'm going to try.

How about you?
