For those who know me, welcome. This blog will be a lot different from my other one. This one is to help me. If it entertains you too, awesome. If not, that's okay too. This is not for politics. Not for feminism. Not for socialism. Not even for autism. This blog is about hope, and everywhere I see it in the world. It's about the hopes I have. And the successes I see. So some of it (okay, a lot) will be about my kids and their accomplishments. Some will be good news stories. Some will be about things I see on the news. Some will be quotes and pick me ups.
I called this "No False Hope" because I stopped believing in false hope some time back. Hope is just hope. It's believing in something being possible, and attempting to make that happen. And if it never happens, it never happened. There was still hope. Hope means, "I'll try".
I have hope that my kids will recover completely. Maybe they will, maybe they won't. But I have hope. And I will try to make that happen.
I have hope that one day women will be treated with the same dignity and respect that is afforded to men. That we will one day make as much money, and have the same opportunities. And I will try to make that happen.
I have hope that poverty will end. And I will try to make that happen.
I have hope that compassion will triumph over greed. And I will try to make that happen.
I have hope that there will be a cure and even better preventions for cancer. I'm not a researcher, but I can donate money to help make that happen.
Anyway, this is the new blog. I hope you enjoy it. (See what I did there?)
