Hope is what I am sticking with

Posted on

I'd like to think that our government has a plan for what it's doing.

But I know it hasn't.

I'd like to think that in their uncertainty they will ask for expert help.

But I know they won't.

I'd like to think that the government would seek to promote calm during the crisis we face.

But I know they're fuelling anger.

I'd like to think that in all the confusion good sense might prevail.

But I know we live in a post-rational world.

I'd like to think that all will eventually turn out well, whatever the government does.

But that means all I am left with is hope.

And hope is what I am sticking with.
