Down, but not out!

Thanks to historian, Michael Beschloss for this photo of Lou Gehrig after being knocked out by inside fastball that struck him over right eye--exhibition game June 1934: .
Of course, Gehrig got up and continued his amazing career until he was knocked out by the onset of what became known as Lou Gehrig's disease--ALS. 
Life is like this photo in many ways. 
Knocked down. 
Knocked out. 
Set back.
How one responds to the painful, tough times determines a great deal about the quality and fabric of a life.
