The winds blow changes, lifting the pages of our book. Flipping the pages to crisp new open ways, we find answers when we look.

I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear. Nelson Mandela
