On the power of hope
|Hope often drives us in times of darkness.
As we trudge through the mud and muck
people often fall on hands and knees from the
pressure and weight of stress and fear.
Yearlong struggles against a virus that
nearly touches every soul in one way or another
eventually wears down even the strongest soul.
Why do we always prevail though?
Young and old are imbued with the single strongest
emotional support in existence. Hope.
And in the moments where all seems lost,
remember it’s always on the horizon.
