In 100 Years…

When we look back at history and read the stories of past generations, we often ask questions like “How could people think that way?”  “How could they have been so cruel?” “How could they treat other human beings like that?” Generations of humans have thought these thoughts, said these words, and made small steps forward.  […]


Looking out the window of an airplane, I had a thought that’s certainly not original, but still interesting to me.
