Viktor Frankl

by Shannon Hoodges
"Frankl endured the nightmare of having almost his entire immediate family (wife, unborn child, mother, father, and brother) wiped out at the hands of the Nazis. Miraculously - perhaps unimaginably - he managed not merely to survive the death camps but to transcend them. 
He spent the remained of his long, influential life promoting resilience and life meaning.
Frankl believed that meaning (not sex or aggression) was life's primary motivating force.
He further maintained that attitude was the one freedom that no one - not even the Nazis - could expunge."
