We Must Help Each Other
Monday, February 23, 2009
In Friday’s edition of The Point we carried an interview with Fatou Camara. In that interview she was asked “What would you recommend a woman with a broken heart to do in order to forget about the past?” In her answer she stated, “To be steadfast and move on, knowing that life is also about challenges and disappointments. We all experience those things now and then but I know for a fact that there is no moment when life depends on a single issue to be lived. Remember Machiavelli: Whatever doesn’t kill me only makes me stronger.” This is indeed true. To suffer in life is a constant human reality. Suffering is as much a part of life as happiness and joy and to experience it is human. Truly out humanity shines through in our ability to encounter suffering and then rise above it, recover and come out the other side.
