Thank you, Peter Martin.

I think many people see in themselves a network of pendulums that represent their going back and forth in various aspects of their belief system. This was truer of me in college than in retirement.

Earlier this evening, I was talking with my fiance, and we began discussing alternative depression treatments. A major part of the conversation was looking at hope. There are at least two types of hope that I understand: Blind Hope and Sighted Hope.

I relied on my eyes and intellect to find hope through the collection of information. I always had 1-3 drugs "on-deck" if the one I was trying failed. My doctor always said that we should just concentrate on the current treatment. Little did my doctor know that I had the ability to walk and chew gum at the same time. Sighted hope for me came in the form of a list of treatments that offered a potential success.

It is only when I am down to zero alternatives on my list that I default to blind hope in order to keep suicide off the list.

And herein lies a very real source of sighted hope that anyone can see the simple common sense being exercised...

One of my clinical research physicians at the NIH and I had a conversation that is perhaps the most hopeful of hopes:

For every new drug that becomes available, a certain percentage of people who had not responded to any previous treatmentx will respond to it who had been refractory to treatment.

Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
