I Wasn't Strong Like This When I Started Out: True Stories of Becoming a Nurse


True strength is not physical; it is emotional, pure and simple. Those who have survived times of emotional crisis and hardship, are, in my world, infinitely many times stronger than those who have survived simple physical pain.

What I am saying is that Katniss and Tris aren’t the only strong characters in books. In so many ways, Peeta is stronger than Katniss; he lived with an abusive mother, and just after the second Hunger Games, his parents and family were cruelly taken from him. Katniss lost her father and her sister, yes, but at least she was left with her mother; she was not the only surviving member of her family. In the same way, Four is much stronger than Tris ever was. She had a good life, and her parents were good people. Four was abused by his father, tricked into believing both his mother and his mentor were dead, and eventually had to decide which parent he wanted to win in a war caused by them fighting against each other. That, to me, shows much more strength than Tris ever showed. Yes, Tris’s parents died, and her brother betrayed her, but she was able to reconcile with her brother, and her parents simply… died. They did not force anything on to Tris; she brought it all upon herself. While she fought with violence, and, in the end, died, Four tried to end everything by diplomatic means.
