"Why...stand aghast at nothingness?"

The rapidity with which spectacular events and radical changes take place in our world today sometimes causes us to blink in sheer wonderment. Political upheavals, aggression, war, changing moral standards, wonder drugs, and space travel seem deserving of one's rapt attention. Surely there is nothing wrong and very much right about being well informed as to current events and world changes, but for the student of Christian Science there should be but one purpose for gaining this information.

Questions should arise from each bit of news. Is this good? Is it according to Principle? Will it make for a better world? If there is evidence of peace and understanding among men and nations, one can indeed be grateful for this, but if not, there is something to be done about the matter. One must prepare for and take mental action.
