Songs and messages of hope, light and positivity! Messages from listeners: **Hope is what we cling to when reality has left us nothing else.
**There is love for everybody if they are open to it - there's no greater gift to give or receive!
**Keep smiling - it is contagious.
**Remember there's no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end.
**We cannot hold a torch to light another's path without brightening our own.
**Light gives of itself freely, filling all available space. It does not seek anything in return; it asks not whether you are friend or foe. It gives of itself and is not thereby diminished.
