Of course anyone who answers this question will be biased, but yes.
For the sake of the good in humanity, yes.
I was told a story in sierra leone that was so disturbing, two of my fellow workers couldn't work for the rest of the day. I couldn't even replay what had been said in my own mind. When i came back home:<br />
* Went with my family to an art gallery and saw some incredible beauty that people had done.<br />
* My 3 year old grand daughter put her arms around my neck and squeezed me tight. <br />
* I realised the person in sierra leone who lived through that horror was spending his life helping others. <br />
The same beings who are capable of such cruelty and destruction are also capable of such beauty and meaning. So, yes.
Only in the sense that it might actually have the potential to become something special.
