To scrap literally means to fight with fists. To me, however, the term “scrapper” encompasses a certain attitude.

Genuine scrappers take each day in stride, no matter how discouraged they might be. Life isn’t predictable, but instead of hating, complaining or seeking sympathy, they face the changing events before them. They play the cards they are dealt and, win or lose, don’t hesitate to ante up for the next game. It’s an attitude defining them.

Among the stories, I encourage readers to direct their attention to “Solace” or “A Light Within.” These stories deal with unexpected life events and how the people in them reacted. My hope is for readers to engage in these people’s lives and see that despite their unpredictable situations, they still get up in the morning.
