The tipping point

Most days I make an effort to visit a site called "Inspiration Peak". Today I found a short essay by Eileen Bennett that explores whether this is a terrible time or a great time to be alive on planet Earth. It's called "The Tipping Point" and I'd like to encourage you go on over and read the whole thing. Here are two little paragraphs from the piece:
I think we are living in very exciting - if disturbing - times. When you consider all the pain and turmoil in the world, it's easy to think that we are regressing, rather than progressing. On the other hand, when you look at all the amazing things that are happening in different areas, you can see that an awakening is inevitable.

There are groups and individuals all over the world striving to make this a better place to be for everyone. The catch-phrase of the moment is 'tipping point' - and everybody can lend their weight to ensuring that we tip into a positive, life-enhancing future, rather than sink further into a negative, destructive one.
Well, I don't know whether the destruction can be turned around or not. What I do know is that, whatever happens, I want to be counted among those who dedicated their efforts to the positive, life-enhancing approach.
