Don't We All ...

In every way, we always hope for the best.  Usually for ourselves mainly, but also family and friends.  Basically, its human nature.  I watch Just for Laughs :Gags, where they put people into whacky situations of the streets of Montreal, to see reactions.  While its funny as all hell what people do in certain situations, what comes through is that most people really give a **** ...  so I'm going on the maxim that 'the majority have spoken' ...

The degree with which people do their best is dictated by their comfort zone, which is common sense.  How about those that go above and beyond their comfort level?  Why?  Putting yourelf out there with not even a thankyou in sight sounds ludicrous.  But how many have done that?  It doesn't make you a better person than someone who chose not to get involved, if involvement meant more harm than good.  So to want the best really is all that matters ...

To a great degree we want the best for the world situation, because we need to want it better than we had it.  It's our legacy to the future ...  Similar to the one we recieved, every generation sees a deterioration from the previous one.  Caring comes with that and other costs.  Not caring means to just ignoe it.  If it makes us cynical, it just means we're paying attention to the realities ...  care too much, and you could end up unhappy ...

I recently crawled out of my comfort zone to help a friend, with excellent results ...  hope became reality ...  take the victories where you find them :)  but that's just one example ...

In no way could I limit what kind of hopes can be discussed here, because hopes are limitless and varied ...

Thanks for sharing this is a very inspiratioinal story and to move out of your comfort zone to help another is courageous and shows the rest of us that is safe to out and do something that might not feel comfortable but ends up having good results in the end.
