My Reply to Charles Shaughnessy's blog



Hello Charlie,
Yes sadly the world is replete with more doom and gloom. It is extending to every facet of human life and every nation. From economic hardship, to the very serious problems of global warming. I have been writing for years trying to get people to open there eyes. My blog is full of messages written as much as 15 years ago, trying to get people to take action.

But in this holiday season there are some reasons for hope.

Today a global warming conferance has taken significant steps towards addressing the problem.

With a new presidential election soon to take place we have a real opportunity to elect someone who is willing to make sacrifices for the greater public good. And the candidates to fullfill the promise.

Technology is advancing at record breaking pace to try and solve the current and future issues we face as a species.

Awarenesss and the desire to "do something" is gaining momentum

Hundreds of thousands here in America are demanding a return to the fundamental principles of the constitution and American democracy.

The protection of global animal species has taken on a renewed interest, and action is taking place instead of just talk.

Though the path is still unclear the american and foreign auto makers are desperately working for solutions to american dependance on foreign oil. 

Green technology is growing, and the uses expanding.

The message about human rights and dignity expands with the ever increasing functionality and spread of the internet.

The internet has provided a forum for people like you and I, bypassing the political restraints and negative capital issues which affect free speech, the right to know, and political agenda.

So there is HOPE Charlie, a form of hope I havn't felt in a very long time.

I wish you and your family a wonderful and Joyous Holiday Season!
And a prayer that 2008 will be the year history records as the year the world woke up.
