Inspiring Words: Power to Choose
My very favourite book of all time is a children's novel. "I am David" by Ann Holm is the story of a boy raised in a concentration camp. Cruelty and imprisonment is all he's ever known, and when he escapes to find his family, he touches the lives of everyone he meets, in large part because he lives by the principle that true freedom is found in the mind, like the quote says, in the power to determine our response to our situation, whatever it may be.
I love it when a book wins a place on your shelf as an entertaining story, and then earns a place in your heart with the truth of its message.
