A couple of years ago, across the country, we were all becoming inspired and beginning to feel that perhaps we could do something about the way things are. Many people felt there was reason to HOPE and that together we could achieve CHANGE.
And now, perhaps the most important first thing to consider about rekindling hope is why we should try. Why now?
For some people hope has a bad reputation, itâs seen as wavy and fluffy, hard to define or measure, not âscientificâ. Or itâs seen as a tool used to âsellâ something, for instance something politicians might use as a smokescreen, a way to manipulate voters, a way of ignoring the reality of the current times.
Some people feel hope is all well and good, but only to a certain point, and sure, itâs nice enough to have it but it isnât all that critical. We have much bigger fish to fry, right? We hear that hope isnât necessary and it wonât help to solve many of the issues weâre all facing.
Well, donât be so quick to discount the value of hope. Tomorrow weâll take a moment to take a closer look.
