I just heard a reporter telling about the mood of the inauguration and he said, "the sound of hope is loud". All I can say is, "DUH!!!" Ever met me? There is nothing quiet about me, so this is nothing new to me. Having a dumb name like Hope is fun sometimes. I try not to be irreverent in church when they talk about "not losing hope" and stuff like that. Randy will always have Hope. He would like to have an absence from Hope sometimes, but that wont ever happen!!! Sometimes Hope isn't very loud, like when I lose my voice (and that happens regularly), but for the most part, I have to agree with that wise reporter... Hope IS loud!!! Anyhow, it just made me laugh.
