The world is in a terrible state: the pandemic rages on, many businesses have been lost, mental health problems have increased, terrorism is still alive, protests and riots have occurred all over the world, clashes between rival groups in America, conflict and disagreement over vaccine passports, a military coup in Myanmar, deadly unrest in South Africa, a crackdown of freedoms in Hong Kong, historic wildfires in various countries, and a potential upcoming conflict involving countries in the Indo-Pacific Region is becoming a likely reality. The world and its people need peace, order, and unity, but we are also in great need of hope. Hopelessness, cynicism and despair are common (which is no wonder), however, there are still reasons to be hopeful, and there are still things we can do to improve our lives and others, regardless of the events occurring at this time.

Below are a few videos, some quotes, and a poem to which might help those who are low on hope right now. 🙂

Poem – Do Not Give Up

We all came into this world to experience it and to help make it better for others. But sometimes things go wrong, we get hurt, we fall down, and our life doesn’t go as we would have liked.

Do not give up.

We all have the potential to learn, to grow, to explore, to understand. Sometimes teachers fails us, sometimes our growth is hindered, sometimes we cannot go where we want, and sometimes things make no sense.

Do not give up.

Sometimes it seems like there is no way forwards.

Do not give up. 

Sometimes it seems like there is no light at the end of the tunnel.

Do not give up.

Sometimes you have no energy and you feel defeated.

Do not give up.

Sometimes you feel like you cannot go on. Sometimes you really just want to give up.

Do not give up.
