Today I bring you a poem shared by Mrs. Pennington! This is “Hope is a thing with feathers, by Emily Dickinson.
“Hope” is the thing with feathers
BY EMILY DICKINSON
“Hope” is the thing with feathers -
That perches in the soul -
And sings the tune without the words -
And never stops - at all -
And sweetest - in the Gale - is heard -
And sore must be the storm -
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm -
I’ve heard it in the chillest land -
And on the strangest Sea -
Yet - never - in Extremity,
It asked a crumb - of me.
Today I bring you all a reading recommendation from Ms. Link. Despite a lifetime of following restrictive rules and a cloistered childhood, Griffin gathered her courage and took the unusual and brave step to go to the police to report the bishop – and would ultimately leave the Amish. Now 36, Griffin is married and a nursing student working toward her bachelor’s degree on the West Coast, and is the author of the newly updated book, ‘Tears of the Silenced: An Amish True Crime Memoir of Childhood Abuse, Brutal Betrayal and Ultimate Survival.’" Tears of the Silenced is available online, and it chronicles one woman's journey from an abusive Amish home and community to missionary work and beyond. Her book is a testament to the fact that all of us can find our voices and speak our truths. We no longer need to hide from shame or fear. Listening to someone else's journey into good mental health can be inspirational and usually you can find Tears of the Silenced free or nearly free online.
