Your responses are great. I find hope and faith to be difficult subjects. I am reading everything and storing your stuff away. Please do not think I am ignoring you. I plan to bring other voices into this still phantom book. I hope we will talk. If you have a chance, Google William Faulkner’s speech accepting the 1949 Nobel Prize for literature. There are recordings. It is a wonderful affirmation of faith in the human spirit, what faith means to me.
