The Human Condition: “the characteristics, key events, and situations which compose the essentials of human existence, such as birth, growth, emotionality, aspiration, conflict, and mortality”. It is a very broad topic which has been and continues to be pondered and analyzed from many perspectives.
I believe HOPE lives in each element of the Human Condition and HOPE lives in the heart of every Huntington’s Disease (HD) family member. HD is a rare brain disorder with symptoms of ALS, Alzheimers and Parkinson’s that no cure. http://www.hdsa.org
John and I had HOPE for healthy children with a normal CAG count. HOPE keeps me emotionally grounded and passionate about offering HD information on all my social media platforms so no one fights HD alone. The HD community has HOPE that researchers will find a cure/therapy. HOPE keeps my heart open to forgiveness and HOPE allows me to use my mortality to keep me mindful everyday of all the all the blessings I have in my life.
HOPE is what John and I clung to, along with each other, as we watched his three sisters, Marcia, Lora, and Cindy, battle Huntington’s disease over a 24 year period of time.
I embraced HOPE, praying everyday John didn’t carry the mutated huntingtin gene.
We must remember, there is power in the emotion of HOPE that can help us through tough times. Read about /the-power-hope
“The road that is built in HOPE is more pleasant to the traveller than the road built in despair, even though they both lead to the same destination.” — Marion Zimmer Bradley, The Fall of Atlantis
