Hope – Our Best Friend

Life they say is a journey, a journey of learning. This learning my friends would never have been possible had we never fallen and the journey would have ended had we never picked ourselves up and moved on. The reason we do that is called hope. Years ago there was a brown skinned Indian man in South Africa. We all know him as Mahatma Gandhi – the father of our great nation, the man largely credited for freeing India from the hands of the British.
