Courage. It’s not the absence of fear. As one of our grandparents said last class,
Courage is doing the right thing…even when you’re scared.
That pretty much sums it up. You will have a lot of opportunities to have courage on the journey of your life. It might be a test at karate in front of a testing board. It might be a test in school. It might be that you witness someone being bullied, and you’re the one that needs to stand up for someone else. There will be people around you that tell you that you should be or do something you’re not. Have courage. Do the right thing…even when you’re scared.
