We just have to look.
Here are a few reasons to feel good about the way things are happening in the world today:

Technology has brought about incredible advances in medicine, transportation, and communication.
We can now connect with people from all over the world instantly, and breakthroughs in medicine are saving lives every day.

Online learning platforms, like Coursera and Khan Academy, make it possible for anyone with an internet connection to learn new skills and advance their education.
While climate change remains a significant challenge, there has been progress made in environmental conservation and sustainability.
Renewable energy sources, like wind and solar power, are becoming more widespread, and many countries are taking steps to reduce their carbon footprint.

People are coming together to support each other, help those in need, and make the world a better place.
