I am grateful for progress.
We don't always appreciate progress especially when it changes familiar places or experiences. It is easy to lose sight of the amazing progress we have experienced as a species even during our short lifetimes.
Life expectancy has risen steadily. Cancer survival rates continue to increase. Poverty is on a steady decline worldwide. Fewer crimes are being committed. Investment in renewable energy projects is increasing. Global tree cover is expanding. It is easy to focus on the negative but we are making progress.
How has progress improved your life?
