Imagine what Americans might have thought during the 1918 Spanish Flu pandemic.
They lived without phones, radios, delivery services, Netflix – you get the point. I wonder how many of them said “we will survive this and things will not just get better but really better.”
Land on the moon. Discover antibiotics and drugs that make our lives better and longer. Prosperity the likes of which I dare say we have enjoyed in full or part for decades. Did they ever think as bad as things got – they lost 550,000 people in the U.S. during the Spanish Flu – that the future would not only be better but great.
On the other side of hopelessness is hope.
