Steady improvement is success

I saw someone post the following image online.

Their point was to complain about the ongoing, terrible reporting of the New York Times. This is indeed a worthwhile complaint.

I feel it is important to also consider more broadly how the world is, in many ways, continually improving. Progress is made. Rights and justice are defended. There are those who are motivated to feed the black dog, either to garner unearned attention by creating fear or to normalize nihilism and corruption. I am endeavoring to pay less attention to the negative and the negation.

In many ways, our world is better than it has ever been. I truly believe Joe Biden is the best President of my lifetime. Individuals throughout my communities continually strive to make each other’s lives better and happier, protect our environment, and create acceptance and love.

And the economy is doing great.
