“Resilience” is found in the access we have to the institutional, economic, material and other resources that give us the ability to respond to uncertainty, as well as the misfortunes and opportunities that present themselves in our lives.  If vulnerability is generated and/or exacerbated by the unpredictability and asymmetrical access to resources that structure so much of our lives, then resilience, not invulnerability, is appropriately theorized as the opposite of vulnerability.
