Looking Ahead

As 2016 comes to an end, I breathe a sigh of relief.

But what 2017 can bring remains more trepidatious than ever.

As Donald Trump ascends much hangs in the balance.

As right wing forces rise, feeding on fear and insecurity, it feels like the world is regressing

As truth is sacrificed at the alter of social media, and the conglomerate media loses integrity, people become prisoners of their echo chambers.

But we cannot lose hope in this hour.

As to lose hope, is to succumb.

It is what it is.
