What Is Courage
Courage comes in many flavors. In general, courage is defined as the mental or moral strength to venture, persevere, and withstand danger, fear, or adversity. It is staunchness of mind and of will. It is the strength to face opposition and not allow it to stop you. It is the strength to cope with hardship. It is maintaining your dignity when it is difficult to do so.
Courage gives you the empowerment of steely determination. It enables you to strive towards noble aspirations.
G-d was missing for six days. Eventually, Michael, the Archangel, found him, resting on the seventh day. He inquired, "Where have you
God smiled deeply and proudly pointed downwards through the clouds, "Look, Michael. Look what I've made."
Archangel Michael looked puzzled, and said, "What is it?" "It's a planet," replied God, and I've put
life on it. I'm going to call it Earth and it's going to be a place to test Balance." "Balance?" inquired Michael, "I'm still confused."
God explained, pointing to different parts of Earth. "For example, northern Europe will be a place of great opportunity and
wealth, while southern Europe is going to be poor. Over here I've placed a continent of white people, and over there is a continent of black people. Balance in all things."
God continued pointing to different countries. "This one will be extremely hot, while this one will be very cold and covered in ice."
The Archangel , impressed by God's work, then pointed to a land area and said, "What's that one?"
"That's New york , the most glorious place on earth. There are beautiful mountains, rivers and streams, lakes, forests, hills,
and plains. The people from New York are going to be handsome, modest, intelligent, and humorous, and they are going to travel the world. They will be extremely sociable,
hardworking, high achieving, carriers of peace, and producers of good things."
Michael gasped in wonder and admiration, but then asked, "But what about balance, God? You said there would be balance."
God smiled, "Not very far from New York is Washington , DC. Wait till you see the idiots I put there."
