Worse Times Than These

It’s kind of a strange phrase, isn’t it? We talk about worse times  in order to help us appreciate the things we have, and we talk about better times in order to hold on to our favorable memories or maybe strive to make things great again.

I understand the value of history, and I see the value in looking back at what has and hasn’t worked. But these are our times. The present is now, and whether the past has been better or worse, our choices will decide whether or not the future is better or worse. We’re not going to the past (or if we are, we’re in trouble), so we shouldn’t be trying to relive it or trying to be use to make our current problems look less significant. We should learn from and keep moving.

Hopefully this song doesn’t feel as preachy as it felt writing this post.
