    Fearless

    To me, fearless is not the absence of fear. It's not being completely unafraid. To me, fearless is living in spite of those things that scare you to death. Fearless is falling madly in love again, even though you've been hurt before. Fearless is walking into your freshmen year of...

    I Really Do

    I live my life in fear of almost anything. When I see people take these risks, I give them props. Now I try to take more risks but it hasn't worked so well for me. Probably because I didn't think so thoroughly.

    It's a Virtue

    In order to exhibit bravery, one must give of their 'self'. To risk something for someone else is a brave, even noble, act of love. To be brave we must loose our fear - fear for ourselves, fear of pain, fear of death. These are selfish fears and stand in the way of bravery, which...
