Tough Times

On October 13, 2010, the last of 33 miners trapped nearly half a mile underground for more than two months at a caved-in mine in northern Chile, are rescued. The miners survived longer than anyone else trapped underground in recorded history. The miners survived by not giving up despite the desperate situation they found themselves in. Too often we give up right before success can come. Discouragement is natural when times are tough, but one must keep putting one foot in front of the other and carry on. As the old saying goes, “tough times never last, but tough people do.” Although that may be a tired cliché, it does contain a great deal of truth. The Dao endures through all and always will.
