Hope, is knowing that after a “tsunami” something will remain and that something is the hope for a better now, for a better future. To know that the dark moments are the ones which allow us to learn how to see clearly. It is knowing that everything in flux, but the love of God, the universal force, brotherhood, your inner peace, or a person who loves you, will always stand by you, with you and within you. And that is the very essence of HOPE.
