In times of darkness and times of trials, Hope is the only thing we have to keep us going. For if we abandon Hope, then there is no reason to go on.
It is Hope, Hope for the future that keeps us trudging through the muck and the mire.
It is the Hope that on the other side of this dark forest that we are in there will be a green field of grass waiting for us with sunshine to warm our body and our soul.
There are many things currently that give us reason to dread and fear, but we must cling to Hope as we do what we must to get through these fearful times.
This pandemic and the economic fallout of it shall pass. Things will get back to normal, at some point.
For if we abandon Hope that the future will be better, than we had all better start fashioning improvised weapons for the anarchistic apocalypse that the lack of Hope shall surely create.
Embrace Hope, all ye who inhabit here (Earth).
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
