Volunteers from the 80th Flying Training Wing at Sheppard Air Force Base lent a helping hand to an area daycare April 23, 2016 in Wichita Falls, Texas.

Like a rubber band, resilience is being able to bounce back when life stretches an individual beyond their comfort zone. And like most situations, people do not understand their ability to bounce back until they are faced with a scenario expanding the normal threshold.
