“If you lose hope, somehow you lose the vitality that keeps life moving, you lose that courage to be, that quality that helps you go on in spite of it all. And so today I still have a dream.” Martin Luther King, Jr.

And as far as false hope, there is no such thing. There is only hope or the absence of hope-nothing else. – Patti Davis

Although “you feel tiny in the presence of a huge disease,” it is important not to lose hope, Davis said, noting that “interactions may be smaller, but you can still communicate” with a loved one who has Alzheimer’s.

Davis also criticized the Bush administration – Laura Bush in particular – for saying publicly to “not give Alzheimer’s patients false hope.”

“Hope is not false,” Davis said. “It just takes hope, sometimes just the hope of one person.” – Patti Davis
