Uncommon Strength: A Tale of the Art of Living

  • Arlene Reilly-Sandoval Colorado State University - Pueblo


The topic of death can be difficult to discuss. The author of the following narrative has had the privilege of knowing one person who continues to face the topic of her own mortality with strength, humor, and honesty. This is not a tale of perfection, nor is it a tale without anger and doubts, but it is a tale of how the author has gained knowledge, insight, compassion, and understanding of how to face our mortality with uncommon strength.
