“Courage is not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it.”
– Nelson Mandela
What we choose to live for, risk for, give ourselves to, is the thing that gives our lives meaning. When it’s children, we create a family. And when it’s our fellow human beings, we create a much bigger family. Those threatened by Ebola are calling for our help. Do we swallow our fear and answer? In this moment, we choose. And by our choice, create the world we dream of, one where every one of us is a precious member of one people, one human family.
