Commentary (Repost from June 2016):
I am reading this book for a potential project in the program for which I am employed. Recently, I read a public Facebook post on June 26th, 2016, 7:33am, by my second mother. Her husband went to school with my mother. She shared a number of challenges that speak to the reason many would shut down: The lost of two children (her oldest daughter and her only son), then a car wreck that included her other children, the loss of a father, surviving breast cancer, blood clots in both lungs, then her baby too experienced blood clots in both lungs and through all this she eventually graduated from college. When I read the definition of resiliency above, I had to stop to publish my thoughts as I immediately thought of her. She has absolutely demonstrated resiliency. She is the epitome of resiliency. Period, Case-Closed!
