I used to think that being cynical and negative made my sound smart. Now I just think it makes me sound like a jerk. Thomas Edison once said, “If the only think we leave our kids is the quality of enthusiasm, we will have given them an estate of incalculable value.” But, how are we supposed to be hopeful in a world so full of pessimism? We saw the new stories of frontline workers who were burnt out, tired and desperate. But were there any who had hope during the pandemic? Is there any hope? And what does morse code have to do with any of this?
