Bad things happen. Life knocks us down again and again. It scrapes us. It bruises us. It forces us to weather violent storms. Yet, it cannot break us. We find refuge in in the pages of our favorite books and comfort in the struggles of our favorite characters. They give us the strength to harness our pain, to to own every stretch and dent, to wear every scar with pride. Without the struggle, we would not know just how much we can take. Without the struggle, we would not be able to keep on fighting when everything is against us. Without the struggle, we would not be the pillar of strength we are today.
Because of reading we know our pain makes us stronger.
