Victim vs. Survivor

According to dictionary.com a victim is, “one that is injured, destroyed, or sacrificed under any of various conditions,” and a survivor is “a person who copes well with difficulties in their life.”

We cannot prevent tragedy or disaster from occurring in our life, but we can choose how to react to those events.  We can decide to be a victim or a survivor.
