Carl Sagan said: "extinction is the rule, survival is the exception."
When your life, when the world feels like a never-ending emergency, sometimes just making it through the day can be a struggle.
We collect scars - physical and psychological reminders of what we've been through. Of who and what we've lost.
But maybe those scars can do more than memorialize our past traumas. Maybe they're also a testament to the fact WE are still here.
WE are exceptional.
WE are survivors.
And we continue to move forward.
