Our God-appointed mission

What enables people to be real survivors—to overcome extreme challenges—and to help others too?

One of my favorite comic-strip characters is Mafalda. I recall her saying to her friend Felipe: "Look what it says here: 'Know thyself.' How about that, Felipe?"

"I think it's excellent!" he says. "What's more, from now on, I'll start practicing it! Yes, sir! I won't stop until I come to know myself—to know who I really am!" Then he pauses to wonder, "My goodness! What if I don't like myself?" Joaquin Salvador Lavado (Quino), Malfalda, 4 (Buenos Aires: Ediciones de la Flor, 1987).
