Tomorrow I leave Nairobi for home. As I get ready for the 24 hour marathon journey a pause to think about my time here…….
I believe that hope has a home. It lives in small places, fanned by the winds of change.
I believe that hope is our compass. Without it we’re lost in the muddy quagmire of despair.
I believe that hope’s journey isn’t a straight line, that the twists and turns make it organic…. and that’s where surprises lie waiting to be discovered.
I believe that hope and change are inextricably linked, like chocolate and peanut butter.
I believe that hope has to be nurtured, sometimes one mere breath at a time.
I believe that cycles can be broken, that ties to the past that seemed forged in steel can be melted and that tomorrow can be better than we ever dared hope.
I believe that love is an elixir for hope.
I believe that the sun is stronger than the shadows.
