Editor's Viewpoint: Courage of Hope
Published 05/09/2012 | 08:00
Little Hope Hillis from Lisburn, who greeted Prince Harry with an affectionate 'cow lick' at the WellChild Awards, is an inspiration to us all.
She was born three months premature and has had to undergo more than 50 operations already in her short life of only five years.
Despite all she has endured, she showed the initiative and courage to greet the Royal guest of honour with her own version of a kiss.
Her determination and innocence give us all some joy and pride amid the grim news coming from this part of the world at present.
