Negativity has become a constant presence in our daily life. We are bombarded with frightening headlines, upsetting viral images, angry neighbors, and family members caught in a political stand-off. But is the world as bad off as we think? Where are the silver linings, and who are the hopeful thought leaders creating ripples of optimism that just might restore our faith in what is possible?
