The Pamela Positive: I Love What Howard Zinn Writes: Hope Is Not Certainty…But Being Open to Possibilities…April 30, 2012
I love how Howard Zinn focuses on maintaining the human spirit. Throughout his life dedication to combatting injustice, striving to help those marginalized, and being involved in a brutal World War, Howard held his views of hope.
“…I intend to be the voice of reasonable optimism, to figure out a passage through this tough time. To have hope, one does not need certainty, only possibility.”
Let’s keep our minds open to the great possibilities which abound before us. There is always a way, a pathway, a new opportunity, a new possibility. A New Hope!
Howard Zinn (1922-2010) was a historian, author and activist. He was a pilot in WWII, an experience which shaped his outspoken opposition of war. He was a professor of political science for many years at Boston University. He is best known for his book, A People’s History of the United States, presenting history from the point of the view of the marginalized.
