I buy quite a bit of paper for my cards from this wonderful store called Gallery Shibui. On their front window they have a quote that I found profound. I looked it up online, and it is from the movie, The Great Dictator, which starred Charlie Chaplin. It is a few lines from the final speech, entitled, "Look Up, Hannah!"
I like to think it has some meaning for us right now. Here it is:
"Hannah, can you hear me? Wherever you are, look up Hannah. The clouds are lifting! The sun is breaking through! We are coming out of the darkness into the light. We are coming into a new world - a kindlier world, where men will rise above their hate, their greed and their brutality. Look up, Hannah! The soul of man has been given wings and at last he is beginning to fly. He is flying into the rainbow - into the light of hope, into the future, the glorious future that belongs to you, to me, and to all of us. Look up, Hannah... look up!"
Will you join me in looking up?
