I have Hope for the world

Hope has a powerful impact because a lot of people have hope for someone or something. For example, I have hope that my family will grow well. Last summer June 23rd, 2005 my brother Oliver died. My mom, my brother George and I were in the car when the accident happened, my other brother Henry was at a play date. I hope that my family and I will see Oliver again, and that Oliver is having fun above us. I have hope that no other wonderful brothers will die or that any families will have to suffer from a loss like ours. I have hope that I'll get a hug from Oliver again. But I know fear will hold you back and hope will let you be free. Hope is peace in the heart and fear is sadness to my family.
