There is always hope. I’ve wanted this word etched into me ever since I nearly died near a year ago. I realized that if you lose hope, you really have lost everything. It’s kinda like that clock that keeps you ticking, keeps you believing that there is something better, something more. Hope for anything. It all starts with hope. It also plays beautifully that my first PACAA was themed Operation: Hope. My ukulele is even named Esperanza, which translates to hope. I really think it’s powerful, and simple. And I am remarkably happy with it.
