Where hope meets cynicism

Posted in American Culture & Politics, Habits & Manners by humanb on April 18, 2010

I took this picture in a back alley in Ann Arbor. Michigan has the highest unemployment rate of any state since the recession.

These days there seems to be an alley in every American soul, where hope meets cynicism. It’s the cynic that’s foreign to our nature though: we Americans have always been hopeful.

But alas, the cynic has captured the moment. And that man selling hope is alien to us.

Better things can happen, if we let them.
