During these dark and uncertain times, there is a lot of talk about hope — it seems more so now than ever before. It’s completely understandable. Hope can give us an impetus to get up in the morning when nothing seems worth getting up for.

Of hope, Emily Dickinson wrote, “Hope is a thing with feathers/ That perches in the soul/ And sings the tune without the words/ And never stops — at all.”
