A Personal History With Dignity

If we can look to the future with hopefulness, we can live with dignity. Miranda has known this her whole life, and she recounts in her diary a summary of her life up to the age of fifty-one. Tragedies bring her low time and again, yet she carries on, not with superhuman strength, but with the resilience that dignity gives a person. No adult-only content. ~2,000 words.With hope, we can accomplish what seems impossible at first. This is the diary of Miranda, born into humble circumstances, and brought low time and again by tragedies in her life. Yet she never gives up, for the simple reason that hopefulness has been a central part of her character since she was a child.At the age of fifty-one, Miranda begins keeping a diary for posterity. The first entry is a summary of her life up to that point, and what she plans to do thereafter in her remaining years. Hope is a recurring theme in her life, as she returns to the well of her childhood learning time and again in order to find the will to carry on. We all benefit from the Miranda's in our midst, and without them, there might well be no hope for any of us. Hers is a life with authentic human dignity.No adult-only content. ~2,000 words.
