rachelmanija has an entry asking people how they've dealt with despair, how they've kept on going. People's replies, both on Livejournal (here) and Dreamwidth (here), are really moving and inspiring. It was a really wonderful thing Rachel did by asking the question, bringing together a treasury of hope and survival, but also acknowledgement of suffering and hardship.

It also shows the best of what social media--blogs and whatever--can be. It's not just one person sharing their thoughts and wisdom (or humor or imagination), but lots of people coming together and sharing with each other and with silent readers who are also there.

Thanks for that, Rachel. That was inspired question.

I completely agree. And I liked that people all across the spectrum of tragedy and trauma responded.

Heartily agreed. I've been quiet there, but I'm really loving the answers -- not just individually, though that too, but in the collection of massed voices.

Reading through all the answers, I feel like there has to be something that will resonate with pretty much anyone, and it's so encouraging to see all these people who have managed to keep going.
