It's hard to think of a year in recent times when the world was in such disarray and people felt so fearful about the future. Christmas is supposed to rejuvenate us and revive our hope for peace, but Christmas 2016 seems to have an uphill climb.
Is it possible to hope for a peaceful world when mass shootings and terrorism dominate the media, when refugees stream out of war zones and de-stabilize world politics, when 21st-century cyber-warfare is underway, when global warming is producing extreme weather and crop failures, when governments refuse to empower the UN to enforce peace?
My answer is yes.
