Photo: That Building Has the Right Idea

In this day and age, it's easy to feel down. No matter where you look you can find bad news without even wanting to, and it seems like it's been a long time since anyone honestly looked forward to the prospect of a better tomorrow. So it's good to find messages like the one on the side of the Wing Sang Building in Vancouver's Chinatown, a simple art installation with the message that "everything is going to be alright." It's visible from the SkyTrain between Stadium-Chinatown and Main Street-Science World, and there have been times after work where it's made me feel a bit better on seeing it. It's a message I wish could be reinforced more often in the media - when it comes down to it, a great many panics are sustained by the news telling people that they should be panicking, and people being too stupid too think about whether that's really the case.
