At a time when it’s easier to yell and point and dig in over our differences, we wanted to take a breath, take some time, and focus on our common hope for the future of our children.

We talked with kids who are part of Bishop John Gunn’s church near the Cleveland Arms Apartments, one of Jacksonville’s high-crime areas.

We gave them cameras and asked them to take pictures of what they saw as ‘fear’ and what they saw as ‘hope’.

They then opened their hearts to share their stories with us. We are grateful for their lessons.
