Everything is Going to Be Alright

Monday, December 26, 2011 by Michelle

Last winter, in the depths of a miserable night of rain and my own life’s sadness, I was coming home from a class on the Skytrain. Just out of Stadium Station, I looked North and saw a neon sign that surprised me with a message that read, “Everything is Going to be Alright“. This unexpected message of hope and optimism lifted me out of the sadness that had been engulfing me in that moment, and truly made me feel hope, even if only briefly. “Yes, yes, it will be alright. Even if it won’t really be alright, surely it will be alright.” Sometimes art makes that kind of difference. Sometimes art makes ALL the difference.
