hope

I first got this idea from here.

 

hope is the last thing that goes,

and when it does,

so does all else.

I think the best example of hope,

is the jewish people.

throughout our people’s history,

no matter how many foes rose up against us,

no matter what drastic measures they take,

what epic arms they take against us,

we have kept our faith.

we have dared to hope,

in places were hope would seem impossible,

were men with hearts that seemed to be of stone zealously guarded,

where the dead and wounded lie around us,

we dared to hope.

 

and that,

I think,

is the secret to our survival.
