strength, a manifesto

     Reptiles face the harsh desert sun and live for days without water,
in blinding hot summers and freezing cold winters.

     There are creatures in the deep sea who thrive in complete darkness,
in water hundreds of degrees, feeding on toxic chemicals that seep out of hydrothermal vents.

     They adapt.
     They survive.

     There is always a way.

     It is our struggles that build character. It is pain that produces strength.
And all the worthwhile things are never easy. Take the hard road and don't look back.

     Never settle.
     Never compromise.
     Never give up.

     There is always a way.*
