you may kill me with your hatefulness, but still, like air Ill rise one more stab to the heart, one more reason to hate, one less reason to live


Why hope is so necessary?!
Hope is unique. It is the most essential part of life. Without hope, their is no life. Hope is the motivation to overcoming our difcult times and learning to accept our failures. If hope did not exist, everyone would constantly give up. We are now living in a world full of hate, racism, scapegoating and genocide and if we dont hold on to our hope than there is nothing left to hold on to. Maya Angelous quote, from the poem Still I Rise, explain how no matter what people say or do to you, you must carry on and just hope for the best. In the book Night, by Ellie Wiesel another quote is used saying one more stab to the heart, one more reason to hate, one less reason to live shows how no matter what you go through, we need to learn from our experiences and grow. Hold on to our hope and continue with our lives. If hope did not exist we would be nothing ... we would be completely lost.

Layout and Design

I chose the light blue color for a background, blended with the image of the bird spreading its wings because blue is a calm color that usually is used to show hope and the bird is usually used as a symbol to represent faith. I displayed my Maxim in the top center so that it is the rst thing that the reader notices. Below the maxim i included the rst quote by Ellie Wiesel because it is very powerful and it will add that strength to the entire page. Below that quote I used the picture of a window shinning light into a dark room, because it just shows how hope is like that shine, guiding us through our difcult times. On the left I used the stereotype so that people can relate to it as they move downward the page. On the bottom center of the page I included the image next to the second quote, because they both talk about not giving up and keeping that last bit of hope.
