"The point of impact is when youre the victim - I dont take that away.  

But what you choose to do afterwards is what determines whether youre going to be a survivor or not.  

Im not taking away the pain and situation of what happened - far from it.  

I was a victim at my accident, but I became a survivor afterwards and for me, anyone can change that dialogue"
