Dr. Slone has observed, by the time we reach early adulthood, we have lived an imperfect life. No one escapes challenge, mistakes, struggle, or disappointment. By the time we reach the middle of our lives, few have escaped trauma or tragedy. We come to understand that life can be unfair and, at times, cruel. We come to understand that life does not always turn out the way we expected or planned. We come to understand that life can change dramatically in the blink of an eye.
