I had a happy announcement to make today, but then I saw the headlines.
I can't say it any better than Patton Oswalt did:
"This is a giant planet and we're lucky to live on it but there are
prices and penalties incurred for the daily miracle of existence. One of
them is, every once in a while, the wiring of a tiny sliver of the
species gets snarled and they're pointed towards darkness. But the vast majority stands against that darkness and, like white
blood cells attacking a virus, they dilute and weaken and eventually
wash away the evil doers and, more importantly, the damage they wreak.
This is beyond religion or creed or nation. We would not be here if
humanity were inherently evil. We'd have eaten ourselves alive long ago.
"So when you spot violence, or bigotry, or intolerance or fear or just
garden-variety misogyny, hatred or ignorance, just look it in the eye
and think, 'The good outnumber you, and we always will.'
Nothing can make death and explosions okay. But at least insights like
this can make the future seem better."
