Story of resiliency from the book
"Man's Search for Meaning"
Author, Victor Frankle was a Viennese psychiatrist who survived the Nazi death camps at Auschwitz and Treblinka. He discovered that the imprisoned person who no longer had a goal or found a way to find meaning in his life by having gratitude, connecting, and giving, was unlikely to survive.
"We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread. They may have been few in number, but they offer sufficient proof that everything can be taken away from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms- to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's way. The way in which a man accepts his fate and all the suffering that it entails... gives him ample opportunity- even in the most difficult of circumstances- to add a deeper meaning to his life."
