Hope is the reason we wish upon a star. Updated Wednsday, Sept. 17th.
Hope without action is unattainable.
This is part of an ongoing project initiated when Jo- Goldsmith launched her Light 2 Love project Good Words. Many writers emerged from that beginning, one of whom is Maria Jordan who followed with Love:Project Good Words Musical Challenge.
I received an email from her inviting me to write. She gave me two words to chose from, humility and hope. I chose hope.
We all live our lives hoping for something, whether it's good health, love, a better job, a new house, a new car, etc. Life without hope would be bleak and uneventful.
I think my most sincere hope would be peace throughout the world and an abundance of food. No family should ever be hungry, yet there are many who go to bed hungry nightly.
Children are starving in Syria today. This could be eliminated if greed is transformed into giving. Nothing is impossible when people begin to see the need enough to give.
Hunger is not happening only in Syria, families here in America are going daily to our food banks . The food banks in every city are begging for donations. The most deplorable fact is many are returning veterans.
Now, just a few of my personal thoughts,
If every person would give one dollar to feed the hungry, there would be no more hunger
Hope is the reason we wish upon a star
Hope kept the Jewish people alive while living in the concentration camps during the holocaust
As writers we hope for a brilliant idea for a superb story to write
Hope is like a rope that dangles within reach but countless people refuse to grab it. Why is that? Is it because they've lost confidence and lack the enthusiam to even hope?
We've all failed sometime and miserably I might add, but we got up and tried again. That old cliche, hope is eternal can be true if we never stop hoping.
I remember when i first started to write on Hubpages, a talented poet read my poem and said, " The idea is good, but the rhyming needs work. " Ouch! I almost quit trying, but i wanted to write so badly, I tried again. In a few months he returned and read another poem and said, " Better, you're improving. " I felt like a hundred dollars times a million!
Final thought: I wish for and hope for many blessings to all my hubber friends and may all your hopes and dreams come true.
