FREEDOM TO CHOOSE ONE’S ATTITUDE

There is a book called, “Man’s Search for Meaning” by Victor Frankl. Frankl was a Holocaust survivor who wrote about his experiences in a Nazi concentration camp.

Everything was taken away from these prisoners. They were stripped of their clothing, their pictures, and their personal belongings. They even took away their names and gave them numbers. Frankl was number 119,104.

Holocaust Survivor, Victor Frankl’s Freedom of Attitude During Suffering

Everything was taken away except one thing. Frankl said, “Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances.”

From a sermon by Christian Cheong, God Acts to Save, 11/7/2009
