Day 2 – Are You Brave?

note: this is part of #bloganuary where each day in the month of January, there is a prompt that we can write on.

My initial response to this would be no! I think of bravery in the sense of putting oneself in danger on purpose. Military, police, fire, first responders, etc. However there have been moments in my life where I have chosen a path that was not supported by others and I needed to stay strong in my convictions and believe that I was making the right decision. There is a certain amount of bravery involved when you are going against the advice of people that you love and respect.

I would also like to think that if any member of my family and friends were in danger, that I would be able to just jump in without thinking, with no thought of the personal consequence.

Am I brave? Not when compared to all the folks that have come before us facing unspeakable intolerance. People that went against the grain to stand up for what was right. People that have changed the course of history because of their determination and conviction.

I believe I am, or would be if called upon, able to summon my bravery.
