Hi all - I am reading a book that I feel might give hope and courage to others. It is "Resilience" by Eric Greitens, a Navy SEAL and Rhodes Scholar. I found it at my local library.
"Resilience is the virtue that enables people to move through hardship and become better. No one escapes pain, fear, and suffering. Yet from pain can come wisdom, from fear can come courage, from suffering can come strength - if we have the virtue of resilience."
"What happens to us becomes part of us. Resilient people do not bounce back from hard experiences; they find healthy ways to integrate them into their lives. In time, people find that great calamity met with great spirit can create great strength."
