Letter: How hope happens

To the Editor:

I sag under the weight

of today’s sad burden.

Not enough money.

Not in the right place.

Not able to find my way out.

Then I look outward and

notice others in this place.

A veteran rolls out his wheelchair.

Children gleefully ride their bikes.

The mailman delivers the mail.

A small warm glow ignites in my heart.

Today I am well. I am strong. I can smile.

I have enough to survive.

I live in a good community.

I will go out of my way to help and be grateful.

Patricia A. Hare
