About HopeRising:

Life can be hell, but in the end it's what you make out of it. You work to find the place where you are happy and loved and when you find that everything gets better. No one has all the answers I'm finding but I sure wish they did. No fear.

"I'll carry your books, carry a torch, carry a tune, I'll carry on, carry over, carry forward, Carry Grant, cash and carry, carry me back to old Virginia, I'll even 'hari-kari' if you show me how, but I will not carry a gun." -Hawkeye M*A*S*H
