Beacon of Hope
The above statue is known by the name BEACON OF HOPE or THANKSGIVING SQUARE BEACON, in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
It’s a steel art measuring 19.5 m (64 ft). The lady is holding a ring called ‘Beacon of Hope’
The idea is to give some public space for giving thanks.
How best we are using our body, talent and our ability to financially help the needy?
None of us has the time, energy, inclination to help the needy.
We all come with a standard excuse that these needy people are cheats, thieves and drug addicts.
“Live your life like a lighthouse and be a beacon of hope to others” unknown
Are we in a position to be helpful to others?
Do others look for hope from you?
Are we ready to fulfil the hopes of others?
Sadly the answer is no.
“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honourable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well” Ralph Waldo Emerson
