“Resilience” In 2014 the Utah Comprehensive Counselors Association commissioned Artist George E. Miller to illustrate their conference theme: “Promoting Resiliency; Student Success from Crayons to College and Career Ready” The Great Blue Heron is a Native American Symbol for Resilience. Hidden in the artwork are the words “Resilience and Grit” The oak fought the wind and was broken, the willow bent when it must and survived- Robert Jordan Resilience The great blue heron glides effortlessly On a changing wind Across an autumn sky, Willow trees sway Give up their leaves Yet not a tear do they cry, Men with their sails Adjust and readjust Never will you hear them sigh Like dancing to a song with many rhythms, they listen, they adapt; their resilience you cannot deny
