Last year I attended a Social Justice Summit hosted by the Trauma Research Foundation. At one point, attendees were asked wat hope meant to them and these are some of the responses:
· Hope is a lifeline when desperation surrounds me.
· Hope is not a conviction that something will turn out well, but a certainty that something makes sense, regardless if it turns out.
· Hope is an orientation of the spirit, an orientation of the heart.
I post this here because right now with everything going on in the world things can feel heavy and scary, because it is heavy and scary.
Yet we cannot lose hope, because when we come together we can do amazing things and to believe there is no hope is to lose before we have started.
