gratitude: “though she be but little, she is fierce”

We grow up compiling images of brave people.  Firefighters.  Police officers.  People in the military.  People fighting for justice.  But the older I get, the more I see acts of bravery all around us every day.

It’s in the friend who holds your hand quietly while you deal with a loss.  The kid who shows up every day no matter what they get called at recess.  Adults who speak out when somebody tells an off color joke and stand strong when they see someone treated without dignity.

Teens who fight the urge to fit in, no matter the cost.  Kids who make friends with the outsider.  People who speak truth in even the hardest of times.

Brave comes in all shapes and sizes.  And thank goodness for it.
