Let the future in…

There is always one moment in childhood when the door opens and lets the future in  —Graham Greene

I saw this quote while watching The Philosopher Kings on my flight to Hong Kong last night. In many ways this quote reflects what we are trying to do with High Five Hope.  Our program isn’t to develop better athletes, but rather it’s to create opportunities — “windows” or “doors” — where these kids in severe and desperate situations can see what a positive future might look like.  That’s the essence of hope, in my mind.

As you go about your day or evening, think about what your ‘one moment’ was, when the door opened, and you could see a hopeful, positive future.   Then think about what or who made that possible.  Have a great Tuesday, Bill
