I would have to agree. I love challanges simply because they make us stronger and provide us with the learning skills to attack or face life in areas that we would normally be lost in. If there were no challanges in life we would never have discovered things like the moon or new species of animal life in the depths of the oceans. More importantly challenges help us to discover ourselves. Were would we be if we didn't discover things in our past? It took the challanges of discovery to find them and look at all we have learned from them. And the challanges of our nation. Sad to say, but it is true that we learned how to defend our nation through challanges and lessons learned from the discovery of past battles. We learned of defensive skills and battle stratigy through studying the discoveries we have found from other cultures and the wars they waged. That was too a challange for those that searched and studied. As far as in my oun life, Yes, challanges have helped to mold me into the person I am today. The things I have learned and the paths that I have walked were all what made me who I am and what I believe in. Challanges are a vital part of our survival. No matter how you look at it.
