Kurt narrated his ordeal. He talked about the uphill tasks he had to surmount, the mountains he had to beat low and the pressures he had to subdue

“Do you mean you went through all these?” Jasper asked.“Yes, I did. Much more than I narrated. I’m still in the process. I fight, I wrestle and I conquer as I move on each day.”

“Wow! You must be superhuman,” Jasper exclaimed.

“No. I’m as much human as you are. I just try to make light of every situation no matter how grave it is. I don’t halt on my strides.”

I think for many people, life is a real uphill struggle. I remember some of my old patients and the problems they had to deal with everyday. Elderly ladies with health problems of their own caring for husbands after they’d had debilitating strokes or with degenerative conditions; I used to think some of them must have had some super powers of their own.

Oh no, I quite agree. As I got older, I realised that all of us gain that super power of ‘carry on regardless’. It’s amazing what we can achieve when there’s no other choice!

Thompson, this is an excellent story. Your protagonist is one of our unsung heroes. So many people struggle against unbelievable odds and yet, day by day, they are victorious. The real courage is to get up the next day and do it all again. I salute your protagonist and I salute you for bringing him to life.

It’s a touching story, Thompson, and it’s relatable. And above all provides a moral lesson. A salute to your character and you also for sharing this story here with us at the Voice club. A good read. Well-written, Thompson.

It’s only when we’re tested that we realise our inner strength. A story that makes you think Thompson and I loved the last sentence ‘I don’t halt on my strides’.

Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!
