One reason I have always loved reading is the telling of true stories of courage and hope in the midst of impossible and horrific situations. I loved sharing stories when I taught history of ordinary human beings who went against the "normal" and chose to act courageously when their worlds seemed out of control...and in the middle of all that is going on...these are the stories that I choose to focus on, to dwell on, and to be inspired by...I am so challenged by those in this community who are finding creative ways to uniquely answer the call to love and continue to change your worlds in the midst of everything. Thank you dear community for showing up again and again with hope over fear.

We choose hope over fear. We see the future not as something out of our control, but as something we can shape for the better through concerted and collective effort. We reject fatalism or cynicism when it comes to human affairs; we choose to work for the world as it should be, as our children deserve it to be.
