Hope and faith in God, yourself, the world in general, can carry you through monumental adversity and extreme hardships. Your entire body and psyche can be totally numb, yet faith and hope can burn protected inside of you where no one else can see it. Here is to the New Year. I hope 2012 will see the benefits of publishing a book for children living with alcoholic parents. Here’s to hoping it will help other kids, and perhaps ignite or strengthen that light of hope and faith. Happy New Year!
