    Having Hope Is Not a Weakness.

    I believe in Hope. Hope + Action = Change. Some people think that "hope" is just a facade--a false sense of security to make oneself believe that things will get better during tough times. They say that people who "hope" just have their head in the clouds and...

    I also believe nothing defines you.

    I mean sure, it can if you let it.. And sometimes it is all too easy to believe it does, or let whatever it is consume you. But what I find troubling is most of us never let the good things define us. We never want it to consume us, and accepting good traits or things going on...

    Hope Wins!

    From day one, Obama has always maintained the message of hope. This race was never really about Democrat vs. Republican, non-white vs. white, young vs. old. This race was about hope and unity vs fear and division. On November 4th, majority of America chose hope and unity! And...

    Everyone has had their fair share of turbulence

    in their lives. Although I've experienced some horrible things, I will not pit what I've experienced to what someone else has. We've all had different problems, but the beauty of the problem is that they eventually end. Too many times, we are so focused on the immediacy of the...

    Hope Is What Makes Human Beings So Rare and Special.

    Hope is what drives us forward, in our daily lives, in our personal endeavours, and as a civilization. We have survived the darkest hours because of hope. Hope is the beauty within us that manifests to create change; it fortifies us so we can progress. Hope is the indescribable...

    Hope is when everything seems to fail

    and every struggle just stopps. When everything is against you but you don't give up. Hope is very close to faith... and in the end I still hope it takes the best turn and outcome!

    I sit here with thoughts racing through my head,

    as if they were going for a checkered flag. Ideas about what may become, and notions that can be made better. They bounce off of my cranial wall like a pinball in a pinball machine. Only positive affirmations will help my days' that lie ahead.

    and I see hope everyday where people think hope does not exist. When faced with something as real as death, all it seems we really can hope for is comfort, care, and compassion in our final days, hours, and minutes.
