    Losing A Friend

    I lost someone who could have been a really good friend today. I felt that she was doing things in her life that were hurting her. I don't like to see friends do that, so I was my usual persistent, stubborn self in trying to get her to see what I was trying to say. Apparently, I...

    I visited his house today. There were many people there. Of course... His father being a very old, well connected revised teacher and the fact that they were of prominent ancestry in their village meant there were bound to be many visitors. He didn't know who we were. I'd...

    I was sitting on a bench at a fair

    when this disabled boy walked bye. He had a problem walking and a mental problem. I smiled at him as he walked bye he smiled back and he stopped and sat down next to me. He spoke very quietly and he was very shy. He began complimenting me and saying that my boy friend was lucky...

    A sign of true Courage is being able to say,

    "Bring it on life. you do not scare me!" That is you saying to yourself that nothing can happen in life that will ever win against you. "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God" Ephesians 2:8 tells us exactly...

    Dear X, The moment you walked into my daycare,

    you had your hands tightly pressed around your ears and wouldn't look at me or anyone else. Yet from that moment, I was touched by you. As a high functioning autistic sufferer your world is different to mine but somehow I feel we have connected. Over the past few months, I...

    I believe Courage is something within us all

    but is only visible in situations where it is needed. Almost like a guardian angel, you are never more couragious than at the time you need it most. You can do anything you set your mind to as its about the power of your convictions, this is what I believe is true courage.

    If you’re looking for a happy ending

    and can’t seem to find one, maybe it’s time to start looking for a new beginning. Brush yourself off and accept that sometimes life can be difficult. That’s how you learn. The strongest people out there – the ones who laugh the hardest with a genuine smile – are the...

    Dear Eve, We don't know each other well,

    you probably don't remember me. Your son Sean was in my class at primary school. I was shocked and saddened to hear of his death a few years ago. Even more shocked when just months on, your middle son died in a car accident. I think about you and wonder how you are getting on...

    The most admirable courage isn't the voice

    that drowns out every other voice with it's loud and mighty RAWR, but the small, tiny voice that says "I will try again tomorrow."

    Courage does not always roar.

    Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day saying "I will try again tomorrow."

    Courage Is Living Your Beliefs

    I admire courage when I see it in others,

    but seeing it in them makes me feel like the lion in the Wizard of Oz, like I need more of it myself to come to terms with my own challenges.

    I admire those who give,

    do, pursue every path of help for the helpless. How can some people spread violence, devastation, genocide and hunger yet feel no compulsion to feel something...anything for their fellow human? (That is a living starving child's hand in the hand of a healthy Westerner).

    There are different types of courage.

    I admire people in adversity who have the courage to walk many kilometres each day for a few hours work at really crap wages, and take the food they can afford home to their children....
