National Month Of Hope
April is the National Month Of Hope. This month was originally conceived as a way for people to spread hope not only within their own communities but all over the world. And hope is exactly what this world needs nowadays. Fortunately, hope is easy to spread and can be done so in any number of ways.
It can be something as simple as mentoring a child who is having problems in school, volunteering for a homeless shelter, giving a friend a hand, or sharing a story about overcoming adversity. Once hope begins to spread it’s contagious, so let’s all work together to make the world a better place by observing this month.
The History Of National Month Of Hope
In 1991, this month was founded by Rosalind Tompkins when she created Mothers In Crisis — an organization that supports women and their families who need help finding a new path. This month has been celebrated ever since to help spread hope to everyone who needs it.
Some Quick Facts About Hope
Hope can be a difficult concept to nail down, but most people agree that it’s a feeling of trust in something positive happening. But in our opinion, it transcends that simple explanation.
We believe that hope not only has to have trust in something positive happening, but when that change occurs it has to fix what was previously broken. Let us give you an example. You may want a computer technician to fix your computer, but unless he actually is capable of fixing it, then you can’t say that you hope he fixes your computer.
Okay, enough with the semantics. Let’s turn our attention to some of the facts that we know about hope and its impact on the world. We think that anyone and everyone observing the National Month of Hope will appreciate the following facts.
- Without hope, few of us would want to get out of bed every morning.
- Hope is capable of providing people with an incredible amount of resolve and strength.
- Hope improves physical and mental wellbeing.
- Hope encourages people to take positive actions.
- Hope reduces, stress, sadness, and anxiety.
- Hope can actually produce opportunities.
- Hope can strengthen a person’s immune system.
