I confess that I am an unreconstructed optimist. Not a naive one; Ive lived too long for that, long enough to have experienced a resounding case for pessimism. I have vivid memories of the Great Depression, and Ive lived through several wars and those international anomalies that we call police actions. Ive watched what has seemed to me to be a rather steady decline in both public and private morals, and a growing confusion about ethics. And of course, Ive watched the increasing prevalence of both evil and inanity (sometimes theyre synonymous) in television and on the Internet. from the Introduction But: There is God. And because there is God, there is goodness. I profoundly believe that God is at work in our world and that our planet has not yet been written off as a lost cause. History seems to tell me that though our human race appears so often to dedicate itself to its own destruction, God is always at work, usually, I think, behind the scenes. And because of God, faith, love, and goodness keep being reborn. So I write about Life from the Up Side.Twelve sessions:On Being Born with a Rusty Spoon: For those whove had a bad startWhen Life Is at January: Who knows what wonders lie ahead?A Woman Who Lived with Scorn: For those who suffer rejection close at?nbsp;handDont Blame the Donkey!
