What is our responsibility as writers, musicians, artists to give others hope? What about us parents, politicians, and teachers? I have been asking
myself this question for some time. Do we have any responsibility to encourage others with hope and to what end? Is hope any more valuable or
important than communicating truth and reality. Does hope only disintegrate into disappointment? Should hope giving only be the purview of the
religious or the often disdained optimists?
When I look around the landscape all I seem to see are signs telling us of failure, corruption, war, famine and discord. The sunrise only seems to
bring more bad news. How long can we continue to bear bad news? Some have attempted to bring more positive and uplifting news to us but it is far in
Where are the words of encouragement that we all so desperately need? Are we still communicating to others that their dreams can come true. How much
of our encouragement given to others is with fingers crossed behind our backs. Have we lost the ability to give sincere encouragement? The doom
message appears to be that hopelessness covers the earth like a dark cloud.
All of us who have the ability to give others hope bear a great responsibility to do so. When children ask us if some day they can be president, an
astronaut, or a doctor are we able to give them hope? The answer is yes, we can and we must for the sake of humanity. We must encourage the dreamers
I believe we all must learn how to share hope with others. Our words are powerful and we can change individual lives and the world with them. Are we
leaving people encouraged or in despair? Like love, hope is something we can share. For when the living love hope there is hope for the living. I
believe in all we do we must share hope.
