Keeping Hope Alive!


A person without hope is inwardly dead,
keeping hope alive.
There's nothing,
nothing,
that anyone has ever done
without the power of hope.

Hope is always about
a desire for something
you don't have.
If you can't imagine it,
you don't hope for it.

Hope is that thing
that keeps us going
and keeps us believing
in our potentiality
when you loose hope,
you get depressed, and when you lose
enough hope,
you die.

Hope beyond hope.
A hope that can keep you going
when you can't find a reason.

Hope is a state of heart that
always keeps you positive.
When we are without hope,
I think we erect a wall
around ourselves.

The economy is limping,
benefits are at risk,
the national mood is bleak,
collective depression,
egoism,
greed
and self-righteousness.
The future isn't bright,
and the solution isn't visible.
Hope has diminished,
especially around business people.
They are angry and frustrated.
There's a lack of confidence
in what can be done,
there's a sense of loss
of social justice,
and this goes deep
into the soul of America.
The government has not justified
in the public's eyes,
the need to reform system
and how far this reform goes.
American people pride themselves
on integrity and fairness.
Create Hope.
Let's Keep Hope Alive!

There! little girl; don't cry!
