This short story is about the lesson of endurance, despite our imperfections. Written in a first person perspective, the author tells a little bit about himself, along with an experience in his life he hopes others will learn from. The lesson? We win some and we lose some, but we can’t let our failures define us. Those who fail will be led to success. For the author, Jimmy Carter played a role in helping him realize this himself.
