Explore the value of Strength
A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles.
Participate joyfully in the sorrows of the world. We cannot cure the world of sorrows, but we can choose to live in joy.
We learn more by looking for the answer to a question and not finding it than we do from learning the answer itself.
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
Old age is not a disease - it is strength and survivorship, triumph over all kinds of vicissitudes and disappointments, trials and illnesses.
Ask not for an easy life...ask for the strength to face the elements, to weather the storms; to be the might for the right and the weak, to be the voice for those who cannot speak, to see one's dreams to fruition with dignity, integrity, and grace.
When something bad happens you have three choices. You can let it define you, let it destroy you, or you can let it strengthen you.
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi

Austin Bray, Murray, Ky
Strength is not just a measurement of one's physical power but a measurement of one's personal determination, Strength is the ability to take hits towards your self and even if you may be knocked down as a result, strength determines one's abilities to not only get back up and brush off the blow, but to also keep pushing against the force that sought to bring you down.
