“Look around, at how lucky we are to be alive right now!” ~Hamilton
If I could choose to live during any time in history, I’d choose now. Yes, there are a lot of things that are crazy and concerning right now, but I’m amazed at the technology that’s currently available to us.
Just this week my wife and I were discussing a topic we needed to make a decsion on that neither one of is knew much about. After about 30 minutes of online research, we were able to gather accurate information that helped us focus our thinking and make a decision. How great is it that we can be completely clueless one minute, and after a few mintes of due dilligenc, we can be informed to the point of being able to make an informed decision?
And it’s not just internet research I’m grateful for. In addtion, my list includes things from music platforms like Spotify (gone are the days of creating a mix tape on cassettes!), to being able to work from home, or any other location with a broadband connection, to opportunites to connect with people all over the world.
I am amazed and grateful. We are indeed lucky to be alive right now.
