Before we encounter sources engaged in the discourse of resilience, it would be a good idea to reflect on what resilience means to you.Without consulting outside sources, define resilience in your own words. What words and traits do you associate with the term? How do we know resilience when we see it? Who or what can be resilient? In which contexts do we use the term? You can also pose questions about resilience here. The idea is for us to start a conversation about the term and take stock of what we know and how we feel about resilience before we engage with outside sources.
