Rory has tagged me for me for his challenge 3.2.1 Quote Me about hope this time around. If there has been anyone that has taught me about hope, it’s my parents. They braved a perilous journey across torrential seas because they knew there was a better life elsewhere, and they were willing to sacrifice literally everything to get there.
Hope has a cost. Hope is not comfortable or easy. Hope requires personal risk. It is not about the right attitude. Hope is not about peace of mind. Hope is action. Hope is doing something. The more futile, the more useless, the more irrelevant and incomprehensible an act of rebellion is, the vaster and more potent hope becomes.Chris Hedges
