Courage is not the absence of fear, nor the opposite of cowardice. It is a decision to take positive action regardless of the negative consequences that could follow. In a split second, Courage forgets the odds and stops calculating the risk, and regards someone or some thing more important, more valuable than itself.
Courage is not confined only to those who bravely chose to be soldiers or law enforcement, but just every day people who do the right thing when the deciding moment presents itself. When God controls our moments, in that decisive instant, we are never alone.
