I am an optimist.
I believe that people are basically decent, and I believe in the kindness of strangers.
I feel that despite the immense challenges of climate change, we will all come together and figure out a way forward.
I believe that in the U.S. we will reduce the deficit and eventually make health-care work for everyone.
I sense that my daughter and others in her generation will find new ways to solve old problems.
I know that there really are second chances and people can succeed when they are determined and work hard.
I believe in spring dawning and the promise of a new day.
I suspect that it's not a coincidence that people with a positive outlook have more good luck than their more negative counterparts.
I embrace sport, and truly believe that there's always next year, and next season.
I believe that you play to the end, and keep your head held high, no matter the score.
I resist misery loving company, and never cheer against a team that hasn't won, just so my team that hasn't won has company.
I don't believe in cursed sports teams, and in theory hold that every professional team will break through eventually.
I am an optimist through-and-through, in everything, really, with one exception:
I do not believe the Buffalo Bills or Sabres will ever win a championship. Someone convince me that I'm mistaken.
