THE VIRTUE OF COURAGE
COURAGE is having the strength to do what we need to do.
COURAGE is when we go ahead when we are afraid.
COURAGE is needed when there are things we have to change, especially if we know it will affect other people and there is a possibility that they won't like what we are doing.
