The human spirit

Economic downturn is already upon us. Yet many hope that good times will return sooner than expected. Yes, I know that hard times are here. Yet it is clear that the human spirit is capable of rising to the occasion. The human spirit has seen harsh winters and arid deserts. The human spirit has lived through bloodshed and tears. Numerous natural calamities have decimated whole populations, only to encourage the stragglers amongst us that not all is gone. There are things which we will do for our fellow men, that we do not know yet. There are ways that we know, that one day everything that we hope for and hold dear to our hearts, will prove to be worth the bitter struggle. We must learn to persevere in the face of hardship. Survival through difficult times, makes us better human beings. What is a man if his only boast is that he eat and sleep to his heart's content every day, while his brother lies dying in the street?
