“At the beginning of each day (really at the beginning of each moment) we must make a choice. Will I have fear or hope? Fearlessness doesn’t mean being devoid of fear; it is an inescapable part of the human experience. Rather, holding hope requires the bravery to look at fear directly and to choose to forge ahead anyway, knowing that there will be pain and that in the end, it will be worth it.

"So make your choice right now. Will you cower from fear, curl up in a ball, and give up completely? Or will you fight with courage and dignity in the face of it? Only you decide your future - in each moment, every day. Yesterday, today, and tomorrow, I choose the warrior’s cry, and I invite you to join me. Let’s do this.”
