you can make it."
Mr. Zamperini on the other hand, did the exact opposite. Though he struggled at first, he continued to live his life and serve God, who he said saved him from a worse fate. He even met with his former captors, all of whom agreed to meet him except one.
His story is amazing, one of strength, patience, and resilience. He showed us what we can be, and just how much we can bear if we're willing to do so. Often in life, we get overwhelmed and question if we're strong enough to handle life. This man shows us that life is hard, sometimes unbearably so. The circumstances we find ourselves in aren't always what we've chosen nor in our control. But what we can control is how we handle ourselves throughout life no matter the situation.
So, here's to a year of strength, courage, and hope. Let's all keep in mind this little quote whenever we forget just how strong we really are.
