Advocacy--A Courageous Conscience

When it comes to protecting, guarding, and guiding our children (in the face of danger or corruption), parents and educators must have a courageous conscience; a conscience that stands firm in a child's defense, ignoring all reasonable thoughts of fear.  
--A. Lujan

Whatever you do, you need courage. Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising that tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires some of the same courage that a soldier needs.
--Ralph Waldo Emerson

Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear. 
 –Ambrose Redmoon

Courage ... Its not enough that we do our best; sometimes we have to do what's required. --Winston Churchill

Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage.--Anais Nin

That which we persist in doing becomes easier; not that the task itself has become easier, but that our ability to perform it has.  --Ralph Waldo Emerson

Courage doesn't always ROAR ... Sometimes, courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow."--Mary Anne Radmacher
