Lesson for the Day: You have a choice not to allow your tragedy, whatever it may be, to triumph over you. Rather, as hard as it may be or as impossible as it may seem to you, choose to turn your tragedy into a triumph, allowing the best to emerge from you in your worst circumstances.
“Caught in a hopeless situation as its helpless victim, facing a fate that cannot be changed, man still may turn his predicament into an achievement and accomplishment at the human level. He thus may bear witness to the human potential at its best, which is to turn tragedy into triumph.”
