Kansas City, Mo. — Turns out there might be more to those “Yes we can” campaign speeches than just good delivery.
Optimism — the expectation of a better tomorrow — is universal, according to a new worldwide Gallup poll.
Around the world, 95 percent of people expect their lives in five years to be as good as or better than they were five years ago, according to the survey analyzed by a Kansas University graduate student.
“The instillation of hope is the biggest factor that causes change,” said Matthew Gallagher, 27, a clinical psychology student who came up with the idea to find out how optimistic people were.

Downtown Lawrence Old-Fashioned Christmas Parade color commentators.
First up: Halloween Paint-In, organized by Lawrence Parks & Recreation.
Anyone wanting to paint a Halloween scene on a Massachusetts Street window — a family-friendly artistic vision, not vandal-minded graffiti — may submit a sketch to organizer Duane Peterson, who in turn can set you up with a glass canvas and all the wash-off paint you’ll need.
Approved participants can be anyone from the third grade and up, and each will receive a T-shirt. Painting commences from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday.
“It’s a family-friendly event,” Peterson said."
Tabetha Faith, 9, Lawrence, paints herself into a pumpkin’s head Saturday as she draws a Halloween image on the window of Capitol Federal Bank at 1046 Vt. Tabetha was participating in the Halloween painting event sponsored by the Downtown Lawrence Association.
