Not Sugar Candy

Hey Kids,

“We have not journeyed across the centuries, across the oceans, across the mountains, across the prairies, because we are made of sugar candy.” –Winston Churchill. December 1941

I heard this quote today and it hit home.

Given by the ever statesman Winston Churchill to the Canadian Parliament shortly following the events that made assured that Canada as well as the US would be playing a part in the expanding world conflict. He shared these words to give them the hope and the assurance that we, as the collective good guys, had the metal to face the oncoming challenges.Winston Churchill

Moving forward, it’s sometimes easy to think of yourself as unable to withstand the pressures of today. Life is not easy, yet we’ve all had to face and overcome challenges, weather failures and disappointments, and continue on from our victories; they all give us the foundation that will support us tomorrow.

We are what our past had made us. That isn’t a bad thing.
