"In the wrong environment, under the wrong influences, even people with the greatest integrity can make the wrong decisions."
- David Brailsford, CBE, Foreword to Racing Through the Dark: The fall and rise of David Millar, May 2011

For how long can you resist something?

When you're living in a world that goes against everything you believe in, how long will it be before those influences and temptations begin to chip away at your willpower, your mental armour?

How long will it take for you to finally give in, to accept and partake in the harsh, brutal reality of the world you live in?

How long, before you break?

A person's integrity can be their greatest asset in their resistance, but like everything else, it can only last for so long.

Many people like to think that they're untouchable, that nothing and no-one can change them or force them to compromise themselves.

The reality is, it's only so long before they fall.

Just like everyone else.

She is...

This one's adapted from a song. :)

"She walks through the city
No one recognises her face
They don't want her pity
No one ever mentions her name
She's carried the broken
But their scars have no name in her heart
'Cause she walks in forgiveness
She'll shine like a light in the dark

She'll always remember
The days when they welcomed her here
They know if they need her
She made a promise to always be here

When they are weak, she will always be strong
Though they don't know it, they're never alone
No matter how many times they may leave
It's never hopeless, 'cause she still believes"

So what, or who, is "she"?

If you know the song, you'll know the answer. :P
