Unflinching

The thought offered from a friend and reader remains with me today, i.e. that he appreciates the unflinching willingness of the lead characters to look at difficult dilemmas and persist in engaging them.

Isn’t that the great but often avoided truth? It’s captured so well with the neo-adage, “The only way out is through.”

And why would we do something that’s personally challenging or daunting?

At a minimum because we see the practical reality that we must engage, that we must see something through, that nothing else will be successful. And perhaps in the end because our experience produces a kind of faith and certainty that the good and virtuous things we seek will be found on the other side.
