“There was never a night or a problem that could defeat sunrise or hope.” – Bernard Williams
As a new year begins, many of us see it as a time of promise, an opportunity to plan, create and even adopt new, healthier habits. These traditions are a symbol of our capacity for hope and the ways in which it enriches our lives. This new year, 2023, with its lengthening days and the start of a new semester will all bring more light into our days, more hope into our being.
