Here’s a hope story for you. 100 years ago a band of 8 musicians played to the end while the Titanic sank. People began telling the story as soon as the first survivors were rescued, and we are still telling it today. In fact, an artifact is now being examined to prove that it is, as claimed, the violin played by by the bandmaster, Wallace Hartley. Why is it that we cling to stories like these? Could it be that each of us hopes that, somewhere in us, there is a spring of untested courage that would bubble up at the last?
