Courage...If I'd Known


“There is no living thing that is not afraid when it faces danger. The true courage is in facing danger when you are afraid. “ L .Frank Baum, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

Courage is not just physical bravery. Hosts Brigitte Jia and Joven Hundal launch this episode by reading the chapter, The Gift of Courage by Afsana Rahman from the forthcoming book, Be the Star you Are! Millennials to Boomers Positive Voices in a Changing Digital World by Cynthia Brian. Afsana writes about the courage of speaking up about any injustice. We cannot stay in silence. Author Rebecca Donovan guests to share her passion for writing for teens to give them a voice. Her inspirations often come from songs, her characters are flawed, yet grow with courage and determination. Her newest stand-alone novel is What If. What if you had a second chance to meet someone again? What choice would you make? Rebecca Donovan advocates for young people to be able to express themselves. There are different types of courage, ranging from physical strength and endurance to mental stamina and innovation. Be courageous!

“Courage is the most important of all the virtues because without courage, you can't practice any other virtue consistently.” Maya Angelou
