It is common knowledge that when hope is lost tragedy will rear its ugly head. If a person lost at sea gives up hope of being found their natural human instinct of self-preservation becomes diminished and so do their chances of survival. The point is this, in times of hardship, hope causes us to hold on just a little bit longer.
In the darkness of times, hope becomes a slight glimmer of light that drives us to anticipate the breaking of the day. Hope is the gut-felt belief that help is on the way.
During this period of the Pandemic, there has been an uptick in drug abuse, alcoholism and suicide are at an all-time high.
It seems to many that all hope is lost.
This brings me to the Good News!
There is a Citadel of Hope in the works, a house built on hope. A veritable lighthouse for women lost in the sea of addiction and despair, or those who are fighting to survive life-altering issues.
