What Kind of World am I Bringing This Child Into?

One of the things I hear a lot from new or soon-to-be parents, be it in person or just on TV, they're all pointing to some tragedy or some instance of really horrible behavior and asking themselves "Why am I bringing a child into such a messed up world?" I was thinking today how it's almost the anniversary of Lacy Peterson's disappearance (she and her then unborn child would later be found dead with details somewhat unclear, and her husband now on trial for their deaths), but in the past few days, Pakistan has made some rather large offers of concession in their ongoing dispute with India and an announcement was made that Libya has been working behind-the-scenes for some time now to get in better standing with the rest of the world. It's very encouraging news. All is not yet lost.
