The song “We shall overcome” was the soundtrack of the civil right movement. Many people have heard it, but few understand it. Back then the goal wasn’t to give up or overpower. The goal was to overcome.
Now a days, I think that people are either too lazy or they are overly conscious and are always blaming the system.
My definition of overcoming is when you acknowledge the fact that there are hurdles, obstacles, and struggles, yet despite of all those roadblocks, you still try to prosper. If life gives you an excuse to fail, it doesnt mean that you must give in to that excuse. You can alway strive to over come.
