Hope is not a Plan
Jefferson and Friends
From my book, An Artist Empowered:
WE THE PEOPLE—did not hope or wish!
In English, the ubiquitous words hope and wish have particular meanings that are imbedded in the American and British psyche.
Hope and wish are passive words; once informed, a creator wouldnt willingly use them.
In the Declaration of Independence, we read: We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
Thomas Jefferson didnt pen: We hope these truths are obvious. To its credit, there isnt a single utterance of hope or any other passive word in this magical document that the Founding Fathers bestowed upon posterity.
