Courage Amidst Adversity

Adversity introduces a man to himself. (anonymous)

Isn’t that the truth.

Adversities have forced me to face my denials, my weaknesses, and take action (actually, I’m not that noble.  Same issues continued to resurface and haunt me until I dealt with them.  I couldn’t stand the pain.  Necessity propelled action.)

The two individuals in this video are ordinary people demonstrating extraordinary courage amidst horrific circumstances (my adversities are eternal bliss compare to theirs).

What would you do if a militia set your loved one on fire before your eyes?  What would you do if circumstance dictated one of you — you or your sister — be gang raped?

I don’t know.  I pray I possess at least one hundredth of their strengths.  I hope I am equipped with the faith and courage to do the right thing.

I can walk away from others but I cannot walk away from my conscience.

Adversity introduces a man to himself.
