Hope In these times we must all hang onto hope. Hold it tight to our souls like the embrace of our dearest love. Cling steadfast to the idea that the world can and must change for the better, and do everything in our power to make it so one moment at a time. This moment like all moments is only temporary. So sink down into that soft pillow of faith, knowing we will come out on the other side with an abundance of wisdom, new stories to tell future generations, and gratitude that we have survived. One day we shall dance again to the delightful melody of our dreams.
