Meaning under each and every circumstance

Posted by Tony Mellor on Monday, January 11th, 2010

Hi everyone!

With all the snow around at the moment, I have been thinking about how old people feel in the cold? This has then led me to a chain of thoughts about a guy called Viktor Frankl, who worked in the snow in a concentration camp and still kept his meaning. It is not what we expect from life, but what life expects of us.

Have a look at the video clip.

I know the picture quality is bad, but the content says so much. Jerry Long had an accident that paralyzed him from the chest down and Viktor Frankl explains how people find meaning under each and every circumstance, beyond physical constrictions.

That’s all for now

Over and out
