Hold fast to dreams,
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird,
That cannot fly.”
~Langston Hughes

Life can be hard, and this year it has felt especially hard. We hang on to our hope so we may thrive and even dream during these hard days.

The community at Viewfinders is sharing what is bringing us to hope during these heavy and unyielding days.
