Expository essayResilience is the capability to bounce back after difficult and challenging experiences. Resilience is an admirable quality to have because it helps with positive outcomes in life and makes people emotionally stronger. Resilience is shown in many different ways whether it be in your life, around the world or in a book or film.When faced with traumatic situations it is easier to simply give up however it's the people who fight that demonstrate resilience.
