What "make it through" means? I heard it in a speech.
I googled it and found out "not die as a result of an illness or an accident, get better after an illness, recover, survive, respond". Is it right?
In a broader sense, it means to overcome a difficulty, to persevere, to go through a tough period, to undergo an unpleasant experience.
