our age of unprecedented growth and technical advancement, is impressive. we are on the threshold of an untold future; the next several years are immensely important to the evolution of our species. meaningless distractions such as hair and skin color, ethnicity, sexual preference, gender, and nationality need to be overcome before we can begin to make the steps necessary to ensure our survival.
But do we live up to the past’s expectations? I do not think so.
