Hope for change, not Hope and Change

by Janie Jones

 

So the deed is done for better or for worse, as they say.  Perhaps it seems odd to my dear readers, but I am reminded of my favorite movie, Joe vs. the Volcano and the end sequence when Joe and Patricia come on the edge of the volcano; they have faced their fears, declared their love and reconciled themselves to the whim of fate and Heaven.  I can’t find the exact quote I’m thinking of, and it’s been a while since I’ve watched the movie, but I think it goes something like this:

Joe (standing on the brink of jumping into a fiery volcano takes Patricia’s hand):  So, what are we hoping for here?

Patricia:  A miracle.
