Hope Springs Eternal in 2014

Hope springs eternal in the Delaware Valley! The snow is finally melting, temperatures are moderating and the Phillies are playing ball in Clearwater. It won’t be long before the sun icon dominates the Action News 7-day forecast, daffodils bloom and birds wake us up with a morning song.

After a particularly grueling winter, I think we can all breathe a collective sigh of relief as we anticipate brighter days ahead. Looking forward to the change of seasons, I am confident that better days really do lie ahead, but not just in terms of the weather. This week when many schools and college take Spring break, several young people from our area are stepping up to plate and dedicating their time and talent to make a difference in the lives of others.

Nursing students from Penn State are travelling to Nicaragua  to administer to sick children as part of Global Medical Brigades. Students from St. Joe’s University Appalachian Experience team are building homes for families in need in Tennessee.  And grade school students from St. Albert the Great are collecting personal care items for the non-profit NGA-Needlework Guild of America to help the economically disadvantaged with the basic necessities of life.

These are just a few of the many community service efforts carried out daily by devoted young men and women of the Delaware Valley.  Every day we mourn the loss of loved ones who have enriched our lives and who have made their mark in their family, their neighborhood, their state, their country or the world. Yet, hope springs eternal, knowing that a new generation is out there, heeding the call and making life better for others near and far.

Thank you to all the students who are spending their break providing hope for a better day to others.   If you would like to acknowledge students you know who are making a difference please comment below
