a dignity

I believe very deeply in the human spirit and I have a sense of awe about it because I don’t know how people carry on…I’ve known people that the world has thrown everything at to discourage them, to kill them, to break their spirit. And yet something about them retains a dignity. They face life and they don’t ask quarters.
