Proof That There is Hope For Us All

Economic woes, war abroad, soaring gas prices, political ramblings and finger pointing.  Yes friends, these days good tidings and cheer are about as scarce as a green-eyed Chinese girl (yes, I just dropped a Big Trouble in Little China reference).  Though in these dark times, a glimmer of hope shines through, illuminating our hearts and warming our souls.

There is hope for humanity after all.
