For our planet,
I believe the world wide economy will recover, with the regions of North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific all competing and driving each other to greater success.
I believe the developing world will continue to develop, reducing war and famine.
I believe our planet will solve the problems of climate change and the destruction of our environment.
For the United States of America…
I believe we will continue to reform health care, eventually making it widely available.
I believe will will overcome the housing crisis, the debt crisis, the social security crisis, and every other crisis that will come our way.
I believe the terrorists, foreign or domestic, will not win.
I believe we will some day reform our prison system, reducing or eliminating prison for non-violent offenders.
I believe we will finally solve the challenges of escalating higher education costs, and I believe we will realize that getting a trade is not necessarily tied to graduating from college.
I believe we will figure out a way to live in harmony, regardless of sexual orientation.
I know that the United States will soon not have a majority race, and I believe we will figure out how to truly live together diversely, yet as one.
I believe the future is bright, and our best days are yet to come.
For the Christian Church,
I believe that through the power of the Spirit, the Christian Church will thrive, becoming one even as the Father, the Son, and the Spirit are one.
I believe the future is bright, regardless of what life may bring.
For us all,
I know that we are all depraved, and we will still mess things up along the way. Yet, I still believe.
