A friend printed this quote on Facebook:
From Braveheart: William Wallace: "Now tell me, what does that mean to be noble? Your title gives you claim to the throne of our country, but men don't follow titles, they follow courage."
For whatever reason this resonated with me. Courage.
I've been thinking about courage a lot lately. Sometimes in life we all are called to be courageous, even when our knees are knocking, and our tongue is tied.
Sometimes we have to step up and speak out. Do the right thing, even if it runs against the grain. Even when you know what you're saying is right, it can be scary.
Scary to be the voice.
To quote a famous and much loved cowboy, John Wayne, "Courage is being scared to death, but saddling up anyway."
