Last week I also finished an interesting read,

A hundred years hence : the expectations of an optimist

by Russell, T. Baron

Published 1905

The author imagined many things that have indeed become reality. One of the things he imagined was world peace. Perhaps in another 100 years?
“I'd rather be an optimist and a fool than a pessimist and right.” ― Albert Einstein

  1. I hope we'll have peace in 100 years. And we will once Christ comes back and establishes His kingdom on earth.

  3. I agree completely with Albert Einstein, I don't want to give up the hope of peace. A thoughtful post in the face of a horrid week xx

    1. History has us hoping for peace again and again, I hope it comes true this time.
