Passionate

via Daily Prompt: Avid

Beyond memory.

Are we still passionate about social justice? By “we” I refer to those of us who grew up with an avid desire to make the world better. What happened to us? How have we continued in our quest for an utopia in the midst of dystopia? Do we still believe in the goodness of our fellow man?

That last question brings to mind my mother who seemed to live with disappointment but always said that the good in humanity was the only thing in which she believed. Is that belief enough?

Are there men who wish to dismantle the fervency of our ideals? Definitely. They are the source of our present discontents. Our lives have no meaning for such people and we should stop following their lead.
