What is your glimpse of hope?

Charles once wrote, “Through all the terror, I can catch beauty in a glimpse of hope.

When I feel lost and broken, I think of that phrase. How could I possibly have hope after losing my son to suicide?

But something happened because of this tragedy.

My capacity for love grew.  Which restored my hope in myself.
