Hope is a feather floating in a bright blue sky
Hope is that sparkle that shines in your eyes.
Hope is a butterfly fluttering on the wind
Hope is good times spent with family and friends.

Hope is a newborn baby’s cry
Hope is a Mother’s lullaby.
Hope is the rainbow after a rain
Hope is the harvest of golden grain.

Hope is the light that keeps darkness at bay
Hope is the breeze on a hot summer day.
Hope is ever present and free of cost
Hope is the last thing ever lost.

Hope is staying positive when the going gets tough
Hope is seeking help when you feel you’ve had enough.
Hope is recovery from simmering sorrow
Hope is believing in a brighter tomorrow.
                    (Linda Hotger)

Hello Diary,

Many people in today’s world are waiting for one being to change the world, make it a better place… but as Mr. Obama has said, WE are the change, we are the answer we are looking for…. one does not need to be rich and famous, does not need to be superman to be a hero… one just has to care and help make a difference no matter how small… and by doing so  give someone hope and the possibility that they can follow their dreams….  🙂

I am not rich or famous, I am not superman.. I did not actively run in the 5K run for a number of reasons, but I did support it with a few dollars and some minutes of my time and working with others, we were able to give hope to children that they may follow their dreams…. 🙂

 

In history’s past, on the path, I had a dream
Of a world in harmony it did seem,
Accepting one as to who they believe and are
One’s life’s choices no one did bar.

Free to climb a mountain, to touch a star
Free to search the universe, where answers are,
Free to venture through life, with open mind
Another’s belief, it did not blind.

Free to boldly walk the lands, both far and near
To lives one’s life without suffering or fear,
Not to be accepted by belief, gender or race, you see
But by the love, understanding and knowledge of a spirit born free.

Children could follow their own dream, you see
Not to be denied by another’s ideology,
To follow the destiny of their own choice
Not to be hindered by another’s voice.

I still have that dream, you know
A dream that began a long time ago,
A dream without end, each and every day
Until the four winds, they all blow away.
        (Larry “Dutch” Woller)

“Heroes are made by the paths they choose, not the powers they are graced with.”  (Brodi Ashton) so, Yes, you can be a hero too, but only if you want to….  🙂

 

Well, I had better close for now… more adventures and dreams are a calling… but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise…  🙂

Hope you are able to follow your dreams and until we meet again..  🙂

May the love that you give
Always return to you,
That family and friends are many
And always remain true,
May your mind only know peace
No suffering or strife,
May your spirit only know love and happiness
On your journey through life.
     (Larry “Dutch” Woller)

  1. Do you know the story of Pandora and her famous box which she was told never to open? All the troubles of the world were released by her curiosity but left at the bottom of the box was hope. Sometimes it’s all we have!

  2. Well done for helping out with the 5K – it’s a great example of how you can do something to help even if you have to think outside the box. If you can’t run it, walk it, if you can’t walk it, donate a little money or your time to support it in another way.

    This is an excellent post that perfectly shows your compassionate heart. We are the change. We can all individually make the world a better place or bring a smile to someone’s face, because the smallest of things we do will count. We can all make a difference. Together, the small actions from each person will add up to a tidal wave.
