I heard a lot of 2013 bashing today (ok that was kind of fun), but I'm not sure why people think it was such a bad year. Negative things did happen, but taken in perspective, things are going pretty damn well. Then again, some people just like to be negative because. And the news tends to shine light on negative events but positive ones not so much.
So here is an article I find more reasonable about the current state of the globe. To me it is great to see the progress we are making and I have a generally positive outlook towards life on this planet as we move forward.
What do you think?
