Thought for the Day

We need to understand the worst-case scenarios and the suffering
 and loss happening now, so we know what we're trying to prevent. 
But we need to imagine the best-case scenarios, so we can reach for 
them too. And we need to imagine our own power in the present to
choose the one over the other. And then we need to act. I believe
that resistance, that standing on principle, that engaging with the
 trouble, is good for the soul, a way to connect, a way to be
 powerful. And get results.
~ Rebecca Solnit
