Challenges - I expected times like this - but I never thought they'd be so bad, so long, and so frequent

Change - When the winds of change blow hard enough, the most trivial of things can become deadly projectiles.

Delusion - There is no greater joy than soaring high on the wings of your dreams, except maybe the joy of watching a dreamer who has nowhere to land but in the ocean of reality.

Failure - When your best just isn't good enough.

Irresponsibility - No single raindrop believes it is to blame for the flood.
