Fragile or StrongCivilization is hideously fragile and theres not much between us and the horrors underneath just a coat of varnish - CR SmithI know this quote is inaccurate Civilization is not fragile some of the people within our civilization are merely shaky It just cannot be stereotyped like that Some people may be weak but there are those few those admirable few that are strong immeasurably strong Their will their inner strength their whole mindset they at their cores are so much stronger than anyone could ever believe possible But heres the thing we all start out as one of these fragile characters that have come to define our society It is up to the individual to change himself and go seek that pivotal moment Take Aron Ralston for example He is an outdoorsman who while descending a slot canyon disrupted a boulder which then fell and crushed his right hand and pinned it to the canyon For more than five days Ralston rationed his food and water until he started to become delirious He realized he had to get out and therefore he used the leverage of the boulder to break his right arm so he could cut through completely Is it even possible to imagine how much strength it took for him to carry out such an act To cut off his own arm That amount of inner strength does not deserve to be classified as weak or fragile What about those who fight our wars fight against disease fight against injustice What does it say about humanity if we wrongly lump those people with the fragile people We are what we make ourselves out to be and we should jump at the chance to join those who have already gone beyond that barrier Why should we pity ourselves No I do not think civilization is hideously fragile The people of civilization are not all as strong
