Her message remains as simple as it strong: Don’t give up. Ever.
“I don’t care what business you’re in,” Ms. Nyad said. “I don’t care if you’re a stockbroker wearing a $5,000 suit in Manhattan or you’re an ER doctor in Las Vegas, we all have the desire to chase our dreams and get over our obstacles. And if we just don’t give up, we will get to that other shore.”
