This isn't a story but a comment I found interesting while reading an article concerning Darwinists.
The statement said: Let's admit that the Darwinists are right about one thing, we are in a predicament. We don't ask to be born, but we here we are. We don't normally want to die, but we do. Not knowing why we are here we look for hope. I would say we look for the reason we are here. The choices being to serve ourselves or to serve others. Jesus said it best, Love God and treat others better than we would treat ourselves. I am not sure that solves finding hope but I think it brings peace with "being".
