“Now is the winter of our discontent.” – William Shakespeare, Richard III
Hopefully, the winter of our discontent will be made glorious summer sooner rather than later. In the meantime, though, have hope.
Giving up would be easy, and some people will. But if we all give up, who will fix what is broken? No one. And if no one fixes anything, if we all give up, then things will remain broken (and will probably get worse). Now is the time for hard work. It won’t be fun. It will be arduous. Grueling. Painful.
But it could be worse.
As long as we have hope, we can overcome anything. The one thing that keeps people going in the face of insurmountable odds is hope. No matter how dark the night, the sun always rises, and hope with it. Others may try to crush your hope, to steal it from you, because hope is power, but don’t let them. Fight hair, tooth, and nail to keep your hope, to keep hope alive.
Hope is power.
We need something to hold onto in times like these, so hold onto hope. With hope and hard work, the odds will be ever in your favor.

I do so want to hope. I guess I couldn’t believe we’d step backwards so quickly after the progress we made.

That makes two of us. I was really hoping the election would bring about an end to all the division and hatred that has been so rampant this year, but it seems only to have made it worse. I feel like people have forgotten this, that hope is so powerful. But even if they haven’t, we could all use a reminder now and then.
So hold onto hope. It’s got to get better. It must.
