The Brave

“The bravest are surely those who have the clearest vision of what is before them, glory and danger alike, and yet notwithstanding, go out to meet it.”

- Thucydides

"Bravery is testing your limits
daring to go past the fence which holds your self security;
It's standing tall for your beliefs so that no one can knock them down...
...Your motivation runs on perseverance to break your limits of courage.
- Megan 
{one of my former students}

“The secret of happiness is freedom. The secret of freedom is courage.” 
~ Thucydides
May we live a life of gratitude
treasuring freedom and the blessings that God has given us.

Have a beautiful Memorial Day Everyone!
and may God be with our troops
...near, far and passed on...
