‘Bounce Right Back Carmack’

"My square is about the ability to 'bounce back', or come back from something hurtful, and still do/believe in what you did before. Resilience is the perseverance to bounce back. Someone I thought about for personal resilience is Iqbal Masih. He was a slavetaht was freed and he went around Pakistan speaking out against child labor. He knew he could be harmed but he did it anyway. A child laborer shot him because he was a threat. I think he had resilience because he stood up for what was right, even though he knew that he could be killed."
