Count the Omer 2015: Day 12


Day 12: Hod within GevurahGlory within Strength
Today is Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day. In honor of the incredible strength it took to endure the horrors of the Holocaust, I will let Eva Kor, a Holocaust survivor, speak for herself about glory within strength.
"The fact that I have overcome so much adversity in my life helps me have hope during tough times. If I could survive Auschwitz, if I could survive crawling on the barrack floor between life and death, I could probably survive anything. I also like the fact that people who hear me speak can feel inspired. They see that I could do it, and they realize they can overcome whatever they are trying to overcome, too. That is helpful to realize, that maybe each of us can help others overcome by sharing our stories." -Eva Kor
Eva continues to draw strength from her life at Auschwitz, bringing glory and hope into the lives of others. You can read Eva's whole inspiring story of strength and survival here.
