Afoot, Alone and Thirty Below

Life is full of storms. They may be in the form of a great challenge or an unexpected hardship, many times they can be almost more than we can bear, even life-threatening. This is when the human spirit calls on us to fight back, push on, and you will overcome. Never, never, never give up, no matter how great the odds against you, press on, persevere, you can win, you can weather the storm.
