Humans are wired to help each other. The problem is that society’s challenges are becoming more complicated and an increasing rate of change is accelerating those challenges. It would be easy to become overwhelmed with the 24-hour news cycle of despair and do nothing. What we have to remember is that we create the future by the choices that we make today.
