The Fifty Year March

Fifty years on, the People's Republic of China and a divided Korea are still here. Vietnam reunited, Germany reunited, a post-Soviet world. Landing on the Moon, Mission to Mars. The USA is still here. France is still here. The Irish Troubles are over, more or less. Independent Armenia. Arab Spring. Middle East troubles -- still here. James Bond and the Rolling Stones -- still here. Civil Rights reforms -- still ongoing. Wars -- ongoing. Copy machines. Scanners. Wireless communications. Climate change. First African American President. First Jesuit Pope, and from Latin America. The Fifty Year March continues.

Today's Rune: Journey.

When you put it like that, looks like things aren't so bad. :)

Erik, why is it that our gains are large in some areas and nonexistant in others? We gotta get it together!
