Go Media is putting on an awesome event May 22 and 23 at Parish Hall – 6205 Detroit Ave in Cleveland Ohio called WEAPONS OF MASS CREATION wmcfest.com They put out a request to give your interpretation of what it means to Defy the Hand You're Dealt. view article here http://www.gomediazine.com/design-articles/contests/defy-the-hand-you%e2%80%99re-dealt/
So here is my interpretation:
To "defy" what is given to you is to not accept either what doesn't have meaning to you, purpose to you or agree with what is in your heart. "The hand you're dealt" is your personal wake up call to either crash and burn or rise from the battle and become better than you have ever been. Despite circumstances, struggles and adversity you find a way, you find your purpose, you become the person you are born to be.
