“You may encounter many defeats,
but you must not be defeated.
In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats,
so you can know who you are,
what you can rise from,
how you can still come out of it.”
Today I choose this quote of Maya Angelou because today is Marathon Monday, here in Boston.
It is the second year after the horrific bombing which took a joyful and inspiring event and tarnished it with violence. Now, a day which used to be a celebration of Spring, courage and endurance, is tainted with suspicion and fear. HOWEVER the runners still showed up to run and the crowds still came out to cheer. This quote speaks to both the runners and all the other participants of today's marathon, as well as speaking to all of us on our own personal journeys. One faces many defeats in our lives, and it is how one rises and survives these defeats is what defines one character! #bostonstrong
