The world sucks, so why not be nice to each other? We're all going to die; so let's face it with courage, and do something worthwhile in the meantime.
I believe the best of people, while at the same time knowing that each person has the capacity for true, horrific evil within them. I believe in a better world while still painfully aware that we will always have to fight against things like genocide, prejudice, and abuse of the helpless innocent.
The universe will end with cold, silent heat death, but that doesn't stop the stars from shining.
