From a worldwide perspective, 2005 has been a tough year.

Blame a lot of it on Mother Nature. A series of devastating hurricanes! Deadly earthquakes in remote places! The struggle to recover from a massive tsunami! Hundreds of thousands of people died. Even here in Utah, floods took a toll.

Beyond natural disaster, we’ve seen rampant diseases, some incurable, spreading across many lands, with the threat of more looming on the horizon!

And, of course, there is war – some more publicized than others, yet each of them destructive all the same.

Yes, a tough, sobering year!

Yet, through it all, we’ve also witnessed, in remarkable ways, the resiliency of the human spirit and the altruistic goodness of people across the globe reaching out to help those in need. Rarely has the world seen such massive and significant humanitarian efforts to relieve suffering and share the burdens of distress. Even in the war-torn land of Iraq, the world recently witnessed a remarkable demonstration of the innate human desire to embrace freedom when citizens cast ballots in an impressive national election.

So, although 2005 has been a tough year, much that is positive can be found in the way the world’s challenges have been addressed. The good, in KSL’s view, far outweighs the bad.
