Hope. By far it is the most powerful thing in the world. It can inspire, encourage, and light the path ahead. It can change any situation, from something truly dire, to something with the potential for brilliant success. Over the past couple weeks, we have hit our fair share of obstacles. Unresponsive potential sponsors, the lack of a driver for our journey, and personal troubles as well. That said, I know that their are brighter days away, and hopefully within the next week we find the sponsorship we desire and the driver we so desperately need.
It hasn’t all been doom and gloom. In fact, the Senior Concert Band at New Westminster Secondary School put smiles on alot of faces just this past week. Armed with glowing hearts, creative minds, and some crayons, these students created some stunning letters and pieces of art for patients at BC Children’s Hospital. Fifteen minutes is all it took. Fifteen simple minutes, the length of the average coffee break, and now sick children at BC Children’s Hospital have Hope. It truly is that simple. I could go on for hours about how profound the effect of such art and poetry is for the kids in hospital and how incredibly heartfelt these messages from students at NWSS are, but I’ll let the pictures do the talking. We’ll keep you updated on the driver and sponsorship situation, and hopefully in the next couple weeks we’ll be heading to New Foundland. For now, all the best. Cheers!
