In the toughest of times and darkest of challenges, we still retain one freedom – the freedom to choose the meaning given to any event, no matter how disruptive or devastating. This meaning in turn, will define the person and the path he or she takes, which ultimately leads to success or failure. One cannot control what happens to one in life, but one can always control what one will feel and do about what happens to one.
