About eight years ago....

About eight years ago, we got to experience the largest popular gatherings ever held. No: these weren't Tea Party rallies. Rather, they were rallies against the then-impending expansion of the Iraq War as they occurred across the globe. For a brief period then and right after, I remember holding some (albeit tentative) optimism that a great calamity would be averted. Those hopes would be quickly dashed within weeks. However, what was made clear then still holds true - there are plenty of ordinary people who can and will stand up demonstrate the better qualities of humanity.
