Easter hope

Today was Easter Sunday.  There could be a million lessons we draw from this significant day/event. For me today was a reflection on hope.  And defining hope, I figured it could be stated thus: that which keeps alive.  

Hope is essentially a silent ingredient in every great virtue.  It is perhaps the launching pad from which many a person do and achieve great things.  It is also true that there are other virtues that truly assist and support in the process, but the one that keeps them all 'alive' is perhaps the hope that what one is after is real and possible.

As Andy states in the movie, the Shawshank Redemption,
... hope is a good thing, perhaps the best thing. And no good thing ever dies.
