Hope begins with us. It ripples out into our homes are places of work on and indeed our communities hope grows and unfurled us when we open ourselves to the possibility to live again to see each and every moment each breath as a precious gift hope is extended when we stop fighting against one another and to begin instead to fight for one another when we remember that each person become in contact with has a unique story and is facing their own very personal battle.
