We all arrive in this world vulnerable.

But with the passage of time, we become stronger. We begin leaving a deeper mark. Many of us become role model for others. Some are revered and remembered for generations.

What helps them reach those heights? Is it the power of their muscles, their fabulous success, or something deeper that makes us unique and distinct from every other life form?

I believe it is the power of compassion and forgiveness – the strongest of forces in nature.
