I Share Hope is the brainchild of Chris Williams. The goal is to interview 1000 world leaders about their vision of hope. The interviews are filled with inspirational true stories of survival and hope.

If you don’t like something change it, if you can’t change it, change your attitude. Don’t complain.

Julie Mayerson Brown is a mother, a writer and a dog rescuer. She and some other mothers founded a nonprofit called Mothers Advocating Prevention, which works with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children to bring a safety education program to local elementary schools. The program taught the ABCD and E’s of Safety with regards of  abduction, abuse, and exploitation.

She now has moved on to spreading the message through fiction with her novel. Her novel, “The Long Dance Home,” was published in 2013. Her message is that change comes through your attitude. Of course, she is talking about people who complain about things when they have, in reality, nothing to complain about. That instead of changing the things around them it becomes a complacent life style.

When facing adversity, don’t give up. Instead, hold on to hope, even a seed of it, that things will work out ok. She tells the story about the aftermath of the OKC Federal building bombing. Even the dogs started to lose hope, so volunteers hid in the rubble so the dogs could find a live person. So, even a dog needs to hold on hope.
