Hope never abandons you,
you abandon it.
-George Weinberg, submitted by Marion K. in Massachusetts


My friends, love is better than anger.
Hope is better than fear.
Optimism is better than despair.
So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic.
And we’ll change the world.
-Jack Layton (1950-2011), submitted by Rhiannon in Ontario, Canada


Ten years later, have you enlarged your capacity for hope? Are you able to
dream about an improved future for yourself and the world?

I believe that these difficult times can either cause a drain of optimism
or a deluge of hope. We must not allow destructive forces to diminish our
possibilities, because our future improves each time we act on our instinct
that things can get better.

And don’t wait for someone else. We need YOU to be on the front lines of
regaining and retaining hope.
