We have more knowledge about the world, than anytime in history.
As bummed as I get and whatever you believe, the Presidents statement gave me perspective.
Obama said, on Jimmy Fallon,
"Democracy requires compromise even when you're 100% right." -Ha! So true!
I was told to say:
"I'm ok with being wrong, even when I know I'm right." -Ha! Sometimes we do stupid shit, we are human.
We may have more information about violence and the world now, but...
Obama said, and I agree, we are lucky to be living at this time in history. The world is healthier, wealthier, better educated, more tolerant and less violent than it's even been.
In a 5 year span, 60 million people were killed around the world. Perspective after his visit to Hiroshima this year.
There's a reason to be hopeful and we have to realize democracy isn't that you get everything you want, when you want it, 100% of the time.
Let's just keep working on it. One love!
