When we look around us we cannot fail to see that we live in apocalyptic times. An apocalypse (ancient Greek: apocálypsis,), translated literally from Greek, is a disclosure of knowledge, i.e. a lifting of the veil or revelation. That in itself is nothing to be afraid of. Just the opposite. It opens our eyes, minds, and hearts. When we wake up in those times it may come as a shock to many to realise the dire straits of humanity, all other living things and this planet. It is easy to feel a sense of despair when we reflect on how we (and those who lived before us) got there and even more so when we contemplate what the future may hold. We might even wonder if there is light at the end of the tunnel at all.
I do not know. What I know is that I am right here right now in the midst of it all. What I know is that I feel the hurt, the injustice, the pain and the sadness. What I know is that there is a deep urge inside me to put things right that started long ago in my teens.
