Wednesday of Hope – Gratitude and Hope in the Face of Terror
Etty Hillesum is such example of courage, compassion and hope in the face of the most horrific times in our recent history.
As life becomes harder and more threatening, it also becomes richer, because the fewer expectations we have, the more good things of life become unexpected gifts that we accept with gratitude.
