Day of Hope

We need not look very far to see people who are suffering, even in times when war and violence are not front-and-center. On any given day, millions of people experience living horrors of various sorts.

The first Wednesday of April is set aside each year as an official Day of Hope. May this be a day of inspiration and motivation for us all to recognize, respect, and even rescue children and adults who are passing through phases of abuse, sickness, and other traumatic experiences.

“Hold your head high, stick your chest out. You can make it. It gets dark sometimes, but morning comes. Keep hope alive.”

— Rev. Jesse L. Jackson  (1941 – )

American political activist and Baptist minister
