If the earth were flat one could equally well say that the apple fell on Newton's head beacuse of gravity or that Newton's head hit the apple because he and the surface of the earth were accelerating upward.
I am responsible. Although I may not be able to prevent the worst from happening, I am responsible for my attitude toward the inevitable misfortunes that darken life. Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have ? life itself.
