Let hope win over the agony,
This too shall pass.
This night, and the new year.
What would be left are,
Memories of what we loved, whom we loved.
Love, nevertheless of the results.
Love, because we don’t know what else to do.
Love, because the world needs it.
Love, and be loved.
Let there be love, let there be light, let there be sanity.
Sam’s speech still resonates.
‘ There’s some good in this world,
And it’s worth fighting for.’
Let this be year of hope and love. Happy new year 2017.
