It Takes Courage
--(Author Unknown)

It takes courage
To refrain from gossip, when others delight in it,
To stand up for the absent person, who is being abused.

It takes courage
To live honestly, within your means,
And not dishonestly, on the means of others.

It takes courage
To be a REAL man, or a TRUE woman,
To hold fast to your ideas,
When it causes you
To be looked upon as strange and peculiar.

It takes courage
To be talked about, and remain silent,
When a word would justify you, in the eyes of others,
But which you dare not speak,
Because it would injure another.

It takes courage
To refuse to do something that is wrong
Although everyone else may be doing it
With attitudes as carefree, as a summer song.

It takes courage
To live according to your own convictions,
To deny yourself, that which you cannot afford.
To love your neighbor - as yourself!
