Have a Little Hope

Sorry for my absence everyone. I hope that everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving. I’ll be back very soon with a longer post but I wanted to get this one up first.

Lately I’ve been down about the results of the grand juries for Eric Garner and Darren Wilson/Michael Brown. Protests and “die ins” for Eric Garner are continuing in NYC. On the other side of the world, Africans are still suffering through the Ebola outbreak. Crisis still looms large in the Ukraine. There is so much to worry about.

Given all that is happening, I was walking down the street the other day, in deep serious thought and I almost walked straight into Robert Indiana’s “Hope” Sculpture.

It was exactly what I needed in that moment to remind me to have hope. Things are very serious, and there is lots that we need to fix, but without hope there is little that we can do.  I continue to have hope that we can make this country and world a better, safer and healthier place for everyone.

Have hope this holiday season!
