“Remember Red, Hope is a good thing… Maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies.” – Shawshank Redemption

When I reached Upper Sandusky and Mansfield I saw roadside markers that told of the Shawshank Redemption being filmed in the area. (20 years ago) I saw the prison in Mansfield, and the courthouse in Upper Sandusky. I never saw the tree which underneath Red found the box. The tin box hidden behind a rock in the stone fence held a message of hope. I see that tree in the Ohio fields every day… it might not be the one in the film but it could be. Hope is everywhere.
