In times of despair, when the present feels dark and the future bleak, the one essential emotion that may help us hang on is hope. Maybe that’s why this poem, shared recently by my friend Lisa, spoke so deeply to me. So many of us are hurting. My wish is that this beautiful piece gives you a moment of hope for better days ahead.
