"When times get hard, we persevere. Like water, we let it roll off our backs. Our resilience is what makes us come back stronger than ever, it's what makes us keep going and it's what will keep us from never giving up. Resilience (re·sil·ience) is what makes America great. This poster was created to highlight the word resilience in a way that made it feel like water on paper, or a material that was elastic. It has worn and wear, but is strong and bold, just like the word itself." -Emily
