Sometimes life gives us lemons…and sometimes it feels as if life is pelting us with rotten fruit. But how we deal with adversity is what defines us. How do we keep going when the world falls down around us, when a hopeful dream turns into despair? When there are forces arrayed against you, be it a bad boss, an unyielding city, or a nation, how do we persevere? These four stories remind us that sometimes just getting out of bed and facing the day is an act of courage, not to be taken lightly. From the story of the upheaval of a family to the story of oppression in the workplace, these stories remind us all: never give up.
