Hope is faith, holding its hand out in the dark.
Hope burns as brightly as this flame.
Explosive, sacred, enormous,
Convergent at a single moment in time.
Echoing, echoing, echoing.
This week Jamie asks wishcasters, where do you wish to make a difference. The flame in this photograph embodies my wish this week. I wish to make a difference here and now, with the world at my doorstep. I wish to make a difference with very smile, every hello, every time I point a visitor, a stranger in the right direction. I wish to make a difference to those who surround me by embracing the hope and unity which the olympic spirit has brought to Vancouver. I wish to make a difference by embracing the flame of hope close to my heart, and savouring what these games have brought, rather than what they cost.
