When they say, ‘The best is yet to come’ and that ‘Tomorrow will bring new hopes for life’… I wonder how distant THAT tomorrow already looks from the ‘reality’. Would we be really able to sing AND dance as serenely as we once did? Can future BE that good? Are you not trying to ignore the negatives from this? Am I still ONLY looking at the odds? Why and why not? Anyone.
#repost from @marenmorris – 👋🏼 it’s been real, y’all.
For those who feel inclined to leave negative shit on this post, take a second to think about what has been accomplished rather than take one last stab at a very human man. •••
“Sister, there were people who went to sleep last night, poor and rich and white and black, but they will never wake again. And those dead folks would give anything at all for just five minutes of this weather or ten minutes of plowing. So you watch yourself about complaining. What you’re supposed to do when you don’t like a thing is change it. If you can’t change it, change the way you think about it.” – Maya Angelou
