    Inspiration: the courage of those who died to preserve our way of life can inspire us to take the difficult actions we need to


Courage. This week we will celebrate Remembrance Day. This day acknowledges the great sacrifices made by so many over the wars of the last century that took so many lives and changed so many aspects of our world.

I am sure that many of those who gave their lives not only demonstrated courage but a strong conviction that their efforts were necessary to preserve the way of life that they loved and wished to see for their children. If we look around our world today we have to ask who has the courage to take the stands that are necessary to bring about the changes that are needed to make the world a safer and more living place full of opportunities for all? My answer: all of us!

Individually we may be limited (but that should not stop each of us from trying) in what we can do but collectively we can make a huge difference. A pebble thrown into the middle of as still pond sends out ripples of action!

This week make the decision to throw a pebble!

“Courage is when you do what you have to do though people don’t think you can. Courage is when you think you can’t do something, but you do it.” - Adam McCord
