God was once asked-
How did You separate Man from other Creations?
Was it Man’s intellect? No. Was it Man’s thoughts? No. Was it Man’s body? No.
Mind? No. Heart? No. Will? No
“To the Zebra, I gave stripes.
To the Giraffe, a long neck.
To the Tiger, claws.
To the Owl, eyes.
To the Grass, fertility.
To the Tree, resiliency.
But to Man,
I gave Hope
and that has made all the difference.”
I think a sense of hope unifies us all. We may not always agree with what another hopes for, but each and everyone exists in hope.
I think we should always be gentle with the hopes of another- whether we deem them realistic or not. Sometimes, hope is all that one has to transform one’s world.
