HOPE

This is the stuff that moves me. This stuff keeps me up at night, yet it is the same thing that helps me sleep, knowing that there is goodness and beauty in the world. Goodness, beauty, worth, dignity, and love lives in each of us. Paulo Freire says that “Without a minimum of hope, we cannot so much as start the struggle.” And as this poet, Raimundo Arruda Sobrinho says, “Hope is the heaviest weight a man can carry. It is the bane of the idealist.” Both quotes are true. In order to have hope, you most hope. When you have it, maintaining it is often the hardest thing, especially if you’ve been homeless for nearly half your life.
