I know that in this time of scandal, outrage and terrorism, a lot of us are beaten down just trying to make it through the day. But I want you to take a moment and think about the soldiers in World War I. One hundred years ago that war was almost, finally, coming to an end. And those soldiers in the trenches would have been absolutely flabbergasted at a movie in color and with sound. Just imagine what they would think of cell phones, 3D printers, and the moon landings. Which begs the question, what normal, everyday things for the people a hundred years hence would completely blow our minds?
The point of this is that while it can be a bitch just making it through the day, at times we need to think of the future. And not just the next year or five. What are you doing today to make the lives of your kids and grandkids a hundred years from now better?
