Resilience

“Resilient is a better word to me than stronger. Stronger implies revenge, retribution. To me, you regain your mental strength, but moving forward, you never want to lose your humanity.”

~ Frank Shorter, Olympic runner who witnessed both the ’72 Munich Olympics, when terrorists took Israeli athletes hostage and the Boston Marathon bombings

Here’s to resilience — and humanity — in 2014.
