Things have definitely been wrong these past few days. The massacre in Norway, I mean. Plus, the death of Amy Winehouse at 27 caused worldwide grief. I couldn't sleep at night this last weekend, so I chose to prepare a blog post with some hope in it.

Hope is that thing with feathers that perches in the soul and sings the tune without the words and never stops... at all. ~Emily Dickinson

And hope needs faith. Because even though you don't know what the future holds, you still hope that everything will be OK. Somehow, it has to, because your mind and your heart cannot accept the evil in the world.

But you must have faith to love. Not just any kind of faith. Only love is able to change the world. Cause we've seen enough hatred already. We know what it does. No more!

I want to finish this post with one of my favorite songs of all time, sung by the young Dionne Bromfield, whose godmother was Amy. To see this girl look lovely and to hear her beautiful voice scares the negative thoughts away. Enjoy!
