Here’s a story that inspired a sense of hope that’s related to the recent eclipse:

“”When he started teaching in 1978, Patrick Moriarty passed out worksheets to his science class, showing the trajectories of upcoming eclipses. Only one was expected to pass near their hometown in Upstate New York, but watching it as a class was going to be difficult — it wouldn’t occur for nearly five decades.

“Hey, circle that one on April 8, 2024,” Moriarty recalled telling his students. “We’re going to get together on that one.”

What I love about this story is that it highlights that amazing things are possible through simply having the audicity to hope.
