Necessary Courage

From Samuel Johnson (first found on a website I can't seem to get to identify itsef):

"Courage is a quality so necessary for maintaining virtue, that it is always respected, even when it is associated with vice."

The part of that I'm focused on is that courage is basic and daily, not just for firefighters and paratroopers.

It's also crucial for life for the rest of us, at our desks, in meetings, in the car, in the kitchen, on the phone.

Yes, Peggy, I sometimes think that just being alive is courageous. So much of what we encounter and how we must respond takes courage. We are faced with courageous decisions every day. You are braver than you know.

Hugs,
Debbie

That last line's a gem, Debbie. Good for us all to remember: "You are braver than you know.
