IT’S ALL ABOUT THE LOVE
(section 2 of chapter 1 of A Day of Hope)

Love: it’s one of the most powerful and influential emotions in the world, and it is one of the most scarcely felt emotions.  Earlier I talked about how many people in your community and in our world are hurting.  Love is the answer to that pain and hurt.

Think about a time when you were doing something, and it hurt badly.  Then someone close to you, a friend or family member, saw you, gave you a big hug (or maybe even a kiss), and you instantly started to feel better.  You felt better simply because someone close to you shared their love with you.

Love is something we as human beings need desperately.  It’s wired into us that we need to feel love and to give love.  It’s what we as human beings need most, yet we get it the least.  That’s why we need to spread it around more.

In a way, A Day of Hope is about spreading the love.  Spreading the love through a simple box of food to a family in need.  It’s simple to give, but complex to make happen.
