If a house is destroyed, there is hope that a new one will be raised instead. If a man is humiliated, he'll be back on his feet again. Stormy clouds are just passing by and, in the end, the sun will make its way through. In one way or another, everything gets repaired.

How would you convince us that there is hope in every little brick that seems to put us down? It's the beam of light, or the beautiful floating lanterns sent across the sky? We will guide you through with the most important keywords.

As usual, we let your imagination do the magic with this theme. Hope and smile are the keywords here. You see them on every people's faces when leaving the hospital in good health, or in a watered flower. You see this in every fallen house being built again, in every river with its ice above melting, in the rising sun and in every window that is opened.

We need to be motivated to believe that good things prevail, so show us people recovering after being hit or hurt, sprouts growing from a dead tree trunk, cheerful people in dried up and deserted places dancing in the rain.
Look further and tell us stories about people quitting drugs, changing their lives and starting over.

Strong will
A man is learning to walk again after having an awful accident. A man walks free after being jailed. In each of the cases, a new life is born, so show us the expression on their faces.

This theme should be a metaphor, please avoid the zombies rising up from the dead - or to make it challenging, if you plan to send such images, make sure they transmit positiveness. Try putting a smile on that zombie face, maybe? :)
