Hope is the Thing

Stories of compassion and understanding on Long Island and beyond.


“Hope is the thing” is a podcast that shares stories told by folks who spread compassion in their communities through their desire for peace, understanding and connection.

This project was started by Dawn Wing, media librarian at Suffolk County Community College.  Dawn was inspired to collect and share stories of folks from Suffolk County community and elsewhere so she and others may have a better understanding of  how particular individuals around us are using their life experiences/struggles, creativity and courage to make meaningful contributions to those around them.

The title of this project comes from Emily Dickinson’s poem, “Hope” is the thing with feathers – (314)
