"It would have been easy to be cynical" is a theme that ran through several conversations we had recently with people who faced difficult problems either in business or in dealing with large institutions such as government agencies and universities. But these people chose not to be cynical. Instead, they looked for spiritual light; they opted to turn to God in prayer, and found that they and their communities benefited.

Two of our writers explore this subject in the focus section. They show that when cynicism is abandoned for love, genuine progress is possible. "Taming the tongue," an editorial, brings out the related idea that mental self-discipline is a powerful, healing force both in our families and in our communities.
