Like many of you are well aware of, some strong, even disastrous, storms moved through the area recently.

In your own life, when storms wreak havoc on your family, your friendships, your decisions, your classes, your jobs, etc., does your fortitude take a stand or does it do the “easy thing” and “sweep it (the problem) under the rug,” and ignore whatever “it” is?

(Btw, fortitude is: Strength of mind that enables a person to encounter danger or bear pain or adversity with courage)
