Hope is not something that can be plucked out of the air, or found on the floor like a shiny, copper penny. Hope comes from people, people who lead with compassion, common sense, and awareness. People who work and fight for the common good with little thought to personal or financial gain. Hope comes from being able to believe that the people in authority: parents, teachers, friends, colleagues, and officials, have our best interests at heart. That ability builds faith. Faith breeds hope.
Happy New Year everyone. May the coming year be exactly what we make it. ~ Linda
