Hope is the warmth of strong arms around you.
Hope is sad tears flowing making room for joy.
Hope is angry words bursting, making room for understanding.

Hope is holding tight to your mother’s hand.
Hope is your father’s good-night kiss. Hope is remembering his kisses when he can’t be there with you.
Hope is finding happiness in simple things.
Hope is daring to do something you’ve never done before.
Hope is remembering that you are not alone. Many other feel just the way you do. Many others care.
Hope is a candle flame in the darkness.
Hope is the clear sky above the gray clouds.
Hope is the glistening of the snow when the storm has passed.
Hope is a heart that is open to the world around you.
Hope is knowing that things change-and that we can help things to change for the better.
Hope is always there inside you, waiting to unfold.
