She said, “It’s easy to be grateful when things go your way, but when things don’t, how you find the resilience in the face of setbacks, how you call on the inner strength that you search for—how you stick with it, well gratitude is one of the ways you can make that happen. To have the gratitude and the inspiration that you need.” A video from the event will be added when/if available.
