COURAGE, by Rachel Lockett

~Courage, by Rachel Lockett
"...Courage is doing the Right Thing even when it's the Hard Thing...
Even if the ENTIRE planet is Against you, Courage stands Strong...
Even if it stands Alone." -- Francis Chan

This picture was greatly influenced by the "Defining Courage" quote by Francis Chan. I know the words are hard to read on her shirt, but it says "Courage stands strong, Even if it stands alone." Like many, I've been bullied all of my life whether it was for how I look, my gender, my religion, etc... This year I've learned that I can be courageous. Courage isn't only about taking "that first dive into the deep end, stepping up to the plate when the game is on the line, asking some one out, jumping out of an airplane, or running into a burning building..." Like many people believe it is... There are quieter forms of courage too. What real Courage is, is "...Refusing to cheat even when you can get away with it, Going Against the crowd even if it gets you laughed at, Standing Up for the kid when every one else
is ripping, Doing what is RIGHT instead of what is Cool, Spending Your Life on Others Instead of living for Yourself, Fighting Injustice No Matter What the Cost, Risking Your Life to Spread the Gospel. Courage is doing the Right Thing even when it's the Hard Thing... Even if the ENTIRE planet is Against you, Courage stands Strong. Even if it stands Alone." -- Francis Chan
