In the midst of horrors, flowers bloom. The 20th century was surely one of the most terrible. And yet it was within that century that we learned it was possible for humans to live on Earth for millenia, without want, and still be free. I do not mean it would be easy. And there would still be law, and human failings. But, if we want it, it is possible. May that make the pain of those times, and of our times, worth enduring.
