Through the eye of the storm, or around it?

Go around or go through? {Click to see larger view}
I made this today, whilst thinking about all the people in my life who have suffered and who are suffering great challenges. Be it cancer, death, abuse and the myriad of other spirit crushing challenges that land on top of us like a giant tornado crushing our home.

It is easy to say, but much harder to do. Great strength and courage must be summoned to walk through the eye of the storm. The people that end up walking through it often come out the other side, stronger, prouder, more determined.

Sadly,  not everyone is able to make it through, and for those that don't we live in hope that the net of community and friendship can catch them.

"Great spirit crushing obstacles, they are inevitable. How we choose to move through or around them, that is our challenge, that is what defines us. "
