Every morning brings a new headline: violence, injustice, disease, suffering.
It’s a lot to take in, and if you’re like me, you’ve probably started to dread the daily routine of scrolling through the news.
I want to stay informed, engaged and present with the realities of our world today, but all of those headlines had me questioning just how much good was really left in humanity.
Over the last year, I started to wonder what it would be like to live in a world where I didn’t dread the day’s news.
What would it be like–despite so much evidence to the contrary–to see the best in people, instead of always anticipating their very worst?
That’s when I remembered the most beautiful lesson my dad ever taught me; something he said again and again, almost like a mantra: Everybody’s just doing the best they can.
That’s the world that I want to live in. Where not only is everyone doing the best they can, but where their best makes the world a better place for others too.
Let’s face it, that is not our world. Not yet.
But if there’s one thing I haven’t lost faith in, it’s our collective power to make things right.
My name is Phyllis Wilson and this is We’re All Alright, the show that explores all the reasons we have to be hopeful–even joyful–about humanity and about our world today.
My goal is to reconnect us with the humans at the heart of the issues, and from that place, explore deep and powerful questions about the world we share and how we think about it.
So instead of feeling like all is lost, we start to wake up every morning and think, cool, we’re going to be alright.
