IS Hoping For Interracial Harmony Still An Idealistic Pipe Dream?

ALL THRU MY TEENS AND TWENTIES I WAS A PASSIONATE IDEALIST(EVEN JOINING THE PEACE CORPS,WHAT A JOKE THAT WAS!),BELIEVING IN WORLD PEACE, INTERRRACIAL EQUALITY AND HARMONY,SAVING THE WORLD,ETC.WELL,OBVIOUSLY, NONE OF THESE LOFTY GOALS TRANSPIRED.IN MY OWN LITTLE WORLD,I DID ACHIEVE INTERRACIAL HARMONY AND LASTING FRIENDS WITH PEOPLE OF DIFFERENT RACES AND CULTURES AND A SUCCESSFUL CAREER IN THE HEALTH CARE FIELD(SAVING SOME LIVES AND LOSING OTHERS).NOW I AM A CYNICAL REALISTIC,JADED AND WORLD WEARY. BUT WAIT!A SPARK OF THE OLD ME,THE IDEALIST OF PASSION AND FIRE STILL BURNS. EACH GENERATON PASSES THE TORCH,RIGHT? THERE IS ALWAYS HOPE.ALWAYS.
