    Was cleaning out a desk drawer last night and came upon this, sent to me years ago by a friend via email. Hope you all find inspiration in it too.


    it takes strength to be firm
    it takes courage to be gentle
    it takes strength to stand guard
    it takes courage to let down your guard
    it takes strength to conquer
    it takes courage to surrender
    it takes strength to be certain
    it takes courage to have doubt
    it takes strength to fit in
    it takes courage to stand out
    it takes strength to feel a friend's pain
    it takes courage to feel your own pain
    it takes strength to hide your own pains
    it takes courage to show them
    it takes strength to endure abuse
    it takes courage to stop it
    it takes strength to stand alone
    it takes courage to lean on another
    it takes strength to love
    it takes courage to be loved
    it takes strength to survive
    it takes courage to live


    Peace
