  2. Richard F. Ames

The world seems to be divided between optimists and pessimists. But as we grieve over the mass killings in Kosovo and in Africa—as we are shocked by the murders in Columbine High School in Colorado and Heritage High School in Georgia, we all may rightly ask, "Is there any hope for the future?

Around the world, nations are losing their leaders of many years. Old statesmen are fading from the scene, and younger rulers are being replaced with STARTLING frequency.
