This photo evokes many emotions and words for me, as I’m sure it does for you. Ruin. Abandonment. Desolation. Emptiness. Loneliness. Sadness.

And yet I also see: Beauty. Hope. Restoration. Love. Joy. Home.

We will return to this photo throughout our journey, as the Story unfolds …

Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness.
– Desmond Tutu
