How You Remember.

“What matters in life is not what happens to you but what you remember and how you remember it.”

-Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Living to Tell the Tale

This is important. It may be an oversimplification, but it is important. Yes, things happen that shouldn’t happen. Injustice is a real part of our broken world. But some people manage to rise above circumstances, while others are held back by them, forever tied down by the past, present, and possible future. And how we choose to remember what happens has a major effect on the shape and direction of our lives.

Apart from the personal moralizing, this could also make for a great internal journey for a character… something to think about, anyway.
