I hope all will be well.

We do hope all will be well. Even though the odds are that all will not be well. It is a particularly poignant human reality that it can never be fully all well. There will always be death, if nothing else. If we eliminated war and violence and discrimination of all kinds –if we cured all diseases and helped everyone become the most psychologically healthy they could be – there would still be the loss at the end. There is always pain. There is always challenge. It is never Happy Ever After. But we somehow are able to dream that it will end happily, that all be well. It is a beautiful hope. I also hope all will be well but I know that that well will include all sorts of things that will not be well. Not at all. But…the hoping is what keeps us well. The hoping all will be well helps maintain our wellness.
