Hope, like Love, is not just another four letter word but is one of the most powerful human emotions. Love makes the world go round. But hope keeps us going forever. It keeps us alive even in our worst time, even when we think we have seen the pits. Hope makes us believe that there is light at the end of the tunnel. It makes us believe that we will see the sunshine after the darkness, that there is a better tomorrow. It gives us courage to face all odds. That is why it is said, when hope is lost, all is lost. When you are caught in the vortex of emotions, have hope. With hope one can hew out of mountain of despair.

But there is a thin line between dreaming and hope. Dreaming is like a fantasy. Whereas, with hope, you strive to achieve. You are in realms of reality.

Have you not heard of the song:
We shall overcome. We shall overcome. Deep in my heart, I do believe, we shall overcome one day.

It is difficult to say what is impossible, for the dream of yesterday is the hope of today and the reality of tomorrow.
