My space, your space... Why can’t we share the same space? Mine, yours… Why not ours? People have become so selfish: uncaring, unloving and even unfeeling. Hope! That’s it! That’s what’s missing. We have convinced ourselves that there is no hope, no tomorrow, no light at the end of the tunnel. But, you know what? There is! It’s in you, and in you, and in you… In your dreams, in your worries and in your never ending enthusiasm.
