“Gratitude is not a form of passive acceptance or complicity. Rather, it is the capacity to stare doubt, loss, chaos, and despair right in the eye and say, “I am still here.” It is like the mantra of British theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking: “While there’s life, there is hope.” Being alive is radical gratitude.”
