Hope is an instinct, a feeling, an impulse, and an insistent reflex in the face of adversity and despair. As a testament to human optimism and resilience, our sense of hope manifests itself in our surroundings - every single day - in its awesome power. A belief that every one of us has value is within both my conscious and subconscious guiding principle. Hope is the language of our human energy as it strives to find the willing eyes and ears of others, and the acceptance that comes from one person paying another heed.
