"The inclination to goodness is imprinted deeply in the nature of man." ~ Francis Bacon.

I believe that people are generally good. Truly they are. Sometimes they just need a little help to draw it out.

I don't believe in born bad. I believe in hurt.

Sometimes I wonder "what hurt you so badly?"

What happened?

I think most people do the best they can in the situation they are in. With the skills, knowledge, understanding, emotional maturity and resources they have at that time.

What do you think?

I'd like to think that no one means to make others unhappy, to hurt others, to make others suffer. 

My daughter tells me no one wants to be the bad guy.  And so, from their perspective may see it very differently. The story they are living is a different one to yours.

Perhaps I am wrong. Too much Pollyanna.

I'd like to think we can build enough kindness, love and goodness to change the world.

I want to change the world. So the world does not change me.
