Run, walk, Crawl

Compared to the trials which our forefathers survived, from fending for themselves in the wilderness against wild animals, to wars, plagues, and other calamities, we have it easy today. Nonetheless, we did not choose when we were born, and the challenges we are facing today are as real as those that the forefathers faced. In those moments of weakness, when we are losing hope, let us remember this quote from the late South African President and freedom fighter Nelson Mandela:

“Difficulties break some men but make others. No axe is sharp enough to cut the soul of a sinner who keeps on trying, one armed with the hope that he will rise even in the end.”
