I like to think so. I think if you give people the opportunity to be good they will. I also think if you oppress people long enough, feed them on a steady diet of negativity, they can do some very terrible things. I’m not excusing bad acts. It would be great if we could all just summon the moral courage to conquer the demons in our situation. For many in this world a lack of any real opportunity to escape their situation sucks the hope out of life. Without hope it’s hard to get out of bed in the morning. I hope I never take for granted the many opportunities afforded to me by my parents and the place where I happened to have been born. Hope burns eternal and for that I’m eternally grateful!
