Iagree with you that misfortune does not have to take away thehappiness that a person can have. Let me first say sorry for whathappened to your fiancé ten years ago. It is so sorry to see thathis walking ability was taken away by a misfortune at such an earlyage. Thank you for sharing such information as an example ofillustrating that happiness can be achieved even during misfortune.The example of the young man shows that Jesus was right, thathappiness can be attained even during misfortunes.

Thefact that the young man is now taking life positively means that hehas found happiness despite being in a state where normal people callmisfortune. At the same time, we have to recognize that he hasexperienced a lot of pain during and after the car accident. Istrongly believe that the push for the better future is what mighthave directed him towards being positive. This shows what Jesus wasexplaining during the beatitudes was a case of the normal human pushfor a better future.

Ithink that Jesus telling people that those who will go throughmisfortune, but never lose their belief in him will be happy orblessed. While Jesus meant those who will not lose faith in God, thesame concept can be translated to mean not losing faith in our ownambitions and belief in the ability to make better decisions. I thinkthat Jesus meant that we should not lose faith in ourselves and inpositive future, despite having faced misfortunes in the past or inthe present. Your essay was informative and very inspiring for peopleto believe in the ability to overcome past.
