banana is an optimist



I am quite happy to be called an optimist, but my optimism is not of the utopian variety. It is based on hope. What is an optimist? I can answer for myself in a very simple fashion: He or she is a person who has the conviction that God knows, can do, and will do what is best...

Optimism indeed. I'm not sure I believe Arrupe's assertion, when I see the suffering in the world, much of it needless, caused by human greed. But I will hold it in my heart and try to understand.
