"While I listen in awe to the powerful words of a victim or a survivor who transcended their pain, I’m drawn more to those who live battered, and who struggle constantly with their anguish. Tragedy marks with trauma, yet one who lives with that trauma and tries to overcome, who sees each day as “a little better” despite minuscule improvement — this is a role model. Life has its painful challenges. We tend to measure a hero in his triumph, but true heroism is found within the struggle.."
