Dr. King On Courage
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said “Courage is an inner resolution to go forward despite obstacles; Cowardice is submissive surrender to circumstances. Courage breeds creativity; Cowardice represses fear and is mastered by it. Cowardice asks the question, is it safe? Expediency ask the question, is it politic? Vanity asks the question, is it popular? But conscience ask the question, is it right? And there comes a time when we must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but one must take it because it is right.”
Courage is about being uncomfortable
But about feeling right….
So I ask do you have Courage?
Do you stand up for the ones without a voice?
Do you protect the innocent?
Do you try and feed the hungry?
Do you say no, when the moment is right? Yes, the word No, when the moment is right, because some people need to hear it and know it.
Like do you have the courage to tell your friend that she need not come out looking like that.
Do you give up your sit to the elderly?
Help a lady with her cart?
