Resilience is a tribute to Paul Hertzog’s soundtracks for legendary 1980’s movies Kickboxer and Bloodsport starring Jean-Claude Van Damme. It is also a reminder to those who struggle with tough times life can bring to you, remain strong and you will prevail. Quoting Steve Goodier:
My scars remind me that I did indeed survive my deepest wounds. That in itself is an accomplishment. And they bring to mind something else, too. They remind me that the damage life has inflicted on me has, in many places, left me stronger and more resilient. What hurt me in the past has actually made me better equipped to face the present.
