Through my travels last night I was amazed at the stillness in the air. People were moving about in a dazed state of being. I could see the confusion in their eyes, the weight of the world resting heavy on their hearts, in their souls.
I feel the stirring deep within my self begin to bubble up…to the point of almost explosion. The question keeps forming… How do I connect with you? How do I make you see?
We are all connected – Connected by the thread of hope. Some of the threads are strong and hold fast, others are frayed and faded losing their grip, and I fight to keep all threads hanging on tight. I do not want to loose even one!
I wish I could come up with the words that would help eveyone understand just what it is I am feeling, just what it is I am trying to do.
I am out and about making connections with this crazy world of ours, touching base as much as I can with every one I run across. This is really nothing new for me as this is how I live my life. I feel that everyone I come across is important – has a purpose in this world, it does not matter the color of their skin, how much money they do or do not have, what religion they belong to, who their parents are, it does not matter. They have a purpose and a right to be here. I feel that I run across different people for a reason. In some cases I have something to offer them, in most they have something to offer me even if I did not realize it at the time.
I have gained and developed many good friends this way. The connections I make today are just as important to me as the ones I made yesterday.
The Foundation of Hope is just the seed of a very big idea that I have. The Foundation of Hope is something that I have been dreaming about for what seems like most of my life. Each day the Foundation of Hope shifts just a little bit to become a little more clear. The vision is there – I just need to help others see it. This I will continue to do! So if you happen across my path, and we stop what we both are doing to exchange a few words, please know when we both go back to what we were doing, part ways… that I touched you… Touched you with Hope.
I think that The Foundation of Hope will undergo a name change in the not to far future. I am thinking that the name will change from The Foundation of Hope to Connections of Hope. You see I am not trying to rule you, or tell you what to do. I am only trying to connect with you so that I can give you hope when you need it. Hope for life, Hope for the future, Hope for Survival!
