Hope | Words that matter

The language that we hold on to, the language that we need to hear, the language that helps us to move forward.

Hope that things will get better than they are now. Hope that your children will be safe. Hope that this will not be their future. Hope that you can cross that border. Hope that you’ll get to see everyone you left behind again, one day. Hope that you saved enough money. Hope that there will be enough clothes in this one suitcase you’re carrying. Hope that there will sun in your new country. Hope that you’ll forget. Hope they’ll forget. Hope for freedom. Hope for life.

Please share how hope has helped you, in good and tough times, in the comments below.

About the photo I saw this sign in a subway station on my way to work in San Francisco. It’s funny how you sometimes see something that touches your heart right away, that you understand right away — when most people pass it everyday and probably don’t even notice it. Hope appears when we need it most – yes, it definitely appeared in all times I needed it most.
