Hope is here. It always has been!

Hope, compassion and gratitude. From the bottom of our hearts thank you to each and every volunteer who is here helping bring Seminole County residents out of the darkness and back into the light. The four letters that spell what each of you have brought with you are now standing at the corner of Tennille Ave. and Hwy. 84 in Donalsonville. Hope is here in Seminole County.

My thoughts and prayers are with each Seminole County resident as we work together in our recovery and in our efforts to build a better tomorrow. I pray for your safety, your sanity and offer the words of Matthew West as encouragement . . .

I woke up this morning

Saw a world full of trouble now, thought

How’d we ever get so far down, and

How’s it ever gonna turn around

So I turned my eyes to Heaven

I thought, “God, why don’t You do something?”

Well, I just couldn’t bear the thought of

People living in poverty

Children sold into slavery

The thought disgusted me

So, I shook my fist at Heaven

Said, “God, why don’t You do something?”

He said, “I did, yeah, I created you” (now listen)

If not us, then who

If not me and you

Right now, it’s time for us to do something, yeah

If not now, then when

Will we see an end

To all this pain

Oh, it’s not enough to do nothing

It’s time for us to do something

I’m so tired of talking about

How we are God’s hands and feet

But it’s easier to say than to be

Live like angels of apathy who tell ourselves

It’s alright, “somebody else will do something”

Well, I don’t know about you

But I’m sick and tired of life with no desire

I don’t want a flame, I want a fire and

I wanna be the one who stands up and says

“I’m gonna do something”

If not us, then who

If not me and you

Right now, it’s time for us to do something, yes it is, come on

If not now, then when

Will we see an end

To all this pain

Oh oh, it’s not enough to do nothing

It’s time for us to do something

We are the salt of the earth

We are a city on a hill

We’re never gonna change the world

By standing still

No, we won’t stand still

No, we won’t stand still

No, we won’t stand still

No

If not us, then who

If not me and you

Right now

It’s time for us to do something

If not now, then when

Will we see an end

To all this pain

It’s not enough to do nothing

It’s time for us to do something

It’s time for us to do something

Continued prayers for your safety and your sanity as we work together in our recovery.
