Resilience is the ability to bounce back when you have every reason to shut down, but you fight on! Resilient people have both tapped and untapped reserves, enabling them to overcome and thrive as they face the setbacks, challenges, and fears of daily life. – Christian Moore, LCSW
I began reading this book this weekend. We might be using it to either expand current programming or develop a new program of study around – resilience. I am only into the introduction and I had to share this quote. Christian has a most inspiring story, a student who had severe learning differences (disabilities), i.e. ADHD. Additionally, I think in light of the latest two murders of Black males, the one near Baton Rouge, LA and the other near St. Paul, MN, community organization is certainly what the community needs. We cannot shut down. We have to develop a renewed or expanded resiliency to overcome or cope and thrive in a place that has continued to be hostile. Period, Case-Closed!
