It’s hard to stay optimistic about things political here in the US due to the impact that big money has on our system, but I’m hoping we reach critical mass on both widening access to same gender marriage and the end of the War on Some Drugs.
On a spiritual front, I’m also encouraged by the example Pope Francis is taking on economic issues. It would be seriously way optimistic for me to think that there will be a similar move on gender issues within the Church.
On a scientific front, I would hope that we can make some progress on fighting chronic diseases, especially diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease.
