The Lotus Flower

The lotus flower is symbolic in many religions and countries as a symbol of power.  It is a flower that emerges though the dirt and the muck of the swamplands.  In fact, the conditions in which the lotus flower grow, by looking at them, they appear that nothing can grow there. 
The lotus flower doesn't care though, it is strong and determined to grow out of the conditions anyway, completely unscathed and untarnished.
The same way humans do during challenging & unsure times.
They continue to grow and rise up no matter what.
