Courage and Hope

The human body can survive for about 30 days without food. The human condition can sustain itself for about 3 days without water, but no human alive can survive for more than 30 seconds without HOPE, because without hope we truly have nothing’ – Sean Swarner.

…without hope, life can be overwhelming and it seems our circumstances are insurmountable. When we feel like this, it can help to hear about those who refused to give up and went on to inspire others with their courage. It’s through them that we begin to understand that the first step past a seemingly hopeless situation is the step that we take in the light of uncompromising hope. Without hope, we feel that there is no need to continue moving forward. Without courage, we would not find the strength to conquer adversity. Here, we offer a look inside the hearts of those who understand that when courage and hope seem to be all that is left – it can sometimes be more than enough.

~ George Parker, N.D.
