The world came down around him with a crushing blow of cold stark reality. This was no minor setback or obstacle, this was one of those life altering events that diminishes the spirit or destroys one’s resolve. How does a mere human come through such adversity, how does one manage to clear away the rubble, brush off the dust and once again join the fight called life. He simply does, and he must, because the alternative is unthinkable.
