Share your Experience of Courage or tell me about someone you know who has Courage!

As a Sociologist, Therapist and having been a Research Analyst, I am interested in hearing about people's lived experiences. In this case, I would love to hear about an experience in which you or someone you know has or has had courage.

  • When did you realize you needed courage? Share the circumstance.

  • Do know someone who know had courage and you admired it? 

Those are the moments that makes a person stronger. If only other’s realized this!


This is the time to share and inspire others!

When we are courageous,we face our fears with a grit of hope that we will overcome --and we press onward despite the odds, despite the unknown and sometimes-- despite belief that we can make it --and when we do, that's brutal courage!
