Fortitude to Keep on Going

I commend Elizabeth and John Edwards as they vow to keep moving along the presidential campaign trail, despite the devastating news of her cancer returning. We have personally experienced those appointments where you stop breathing while waiting anxiously for test results. We know the feeling of a "scare," and the relief when it is no more than a scare.
Our hearts and thoughts go to their family as they face continued challenges. Why do good people get extra hard challenges when they have already proven they can handle them? Maybe it doesn't work that way, but it just doesn't seem fair when he is trying to change the country for the better.
I have to say that I wept when I heard her diagnosis; we lamented their sadness all day.
It was a fitting day for it to be pouring rain.
