Need to Dream

I bumped into my friend from Belfast today, a Sinn Fein goodwill ambassador now living in San Francisco, and was heartened to hear the Northern Ireland Assembly is working well. Old feuds seem to be slowly healing, and everyone of influence appears committed to focusing on the refreshingly mundane tasks associated with health, housing, education, and economics. Perhaps someday, Americans, too, can put their violent ways behind them, and begin catering to human need rather than corporate greed. At least we can dream.
