Letter from the staff: (Excerpt)
In this issue of Writer’s Bloc we are thrilled to welcome the submissions of Cornellians from the many different parts of our academic community. We asked students from the Ithaca and Qatar campuses, as well as students in the Cornell Prison Education Program at Auburn and Cayuga correctional facilities, to collectively brainstorm a quote from psychologist Viktor E. Frankl about throwing off external constructs and defining one’s own circumstances:

“The one thing you can’t take away from me is the way I choose to respond to what you do to me. The last of one’s freedoms is to choose one’s attitude in any given circumstance.”
