Hardships Can Make Us Shine (like a glow stick!)

by Kiran Zulfiqar (from her Beautified Sabr blog) When you buy a glowstick, it’s just a tube of inert plastic with some liquid inside. It doesn’t look like anything special. It certainly does not glow. When you put it under pressure, however ~ when you bend it ~ a transformation occurs. A capsule inside the glowstick is crushed, and the stick begins to shine.
