[Hope] ...the result of kindness toward a suffering soul

“You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. I hope someday you'll join us. And the world will live as one.”
― John Lennon

If you're reading this...yippee, you are alive! 
If that's not something to celebrate, then I don't know what else is!  

“Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all.”
― Emily Dickinson
