Stronger

Kanye West, the sample-happy multimillionaire rapper, has shot to the top of the pop charts with his new single, Stronger.

With his hand gripping the mike and a deep, earnest look on his face, he croons “Na na na…That that don’t kill me will only make me stronger...”

Now, I respect Kanye’s ability to turn other people’s tunes in platinum selling bundles of 3 minute joy that make him a fortune, but it’s obvious to me that he’s never spent any significant amount of time in a hospital.

I can think of loads of things that don’t kill you but certainly DO NOT make you stronger. Off the top of my head, I can think of:

Herpes
Strokes
Heart Attacks
Schizophrenia
Amputations

Can you think of any more?

Maybe we're talking here about adversity - rather than specific illnesses? Adversity can either make you or break you. It certainly has the potential to make you stronger - more resilient.
