Chin Up & Go Vote: Twenty-Three Big Reasons For Hope

temp-post-imageThese are tumultuous times, in America and around the world, and as we come up on election day one detects a sense of urgency–a refreshing change for a midterm season. But for those who might still be thinking of sitting the midterms out, consider this: there is actually a lot of good news to report around the world, as this article from Vox points out.

In the article, fully twenty-three separate metrics are cited by the publication to show that poverty, hunger and child labor are all on the decline around the world–and have been for many decades. And these are only a few of the positive trends that we've been seeing. Many eligible voters are unaware of these trends, and our news media doesn't always do the best job of highlighting them.

While we steer clear of political affiliations, we find this to be a positive and timely reminder that policy matters. And that no matter what your political stripe, we all have a job to do tomorrow. See you at the polls!
