Text: Courage looks you straight in the eye. It is not impressed with power trippers, and she knows first aid. Courage is not afraid to weep, and he is not afraid to pray, even when she is not sure to whom it is praying. When he walks it is clear she has made the journey from loneliness to solitude. The people who told me it was stern were not lying - they just forgot to mention he is kind. -- If I were asked to give what I consider to be the single most useful bit of advice for all humanity, it would be this: expect trouble as an inevitable part of life, and when it comes hold your head high. Look it square in the eye and say, "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble" then repeat to yourself the most comforting words of all, "... and lo, I am with you always..." (with apologies to Ruth & Ann)
