The power of hope cannot be underestimated. Power is defined as “the ability to do or act; capability of doing or accomplishing something”. We certainly know and understand the power of a jet engine to get a plane in the air. In addition, would anyone ever deny the power of love? I don’t believe so. And then there is hope, defined as “the feeling that what is wanted can be had or that events will turn out for the best.” Putting the two together reveals a boundless situation, the power of hope. Throughout all of this one must realize that we will not always get what we hope for. I have found that out many times. But, if we don’t hope for something, then we will get nothing.
The video below should give us an idea of the power that exists within us that must be embraced, the power of hope. It is a power that is designed to give hope to patients and families dealing with cancer and chronic illnesses. Recently there has been a study from the American Cancer Society that has shown that the incidence of cancer has decreased 27% in the past 25 years. That is awesome news, but it is still a very prevalent, potentially deadly disease. No matter what we are dealing with we need to LIVE LIFE, whatever that means to us.
