When we are examples of courageous behavior, we leave an everlasting impression on others.  I truly believe that to be brave, one must have a strong faith at their very core.  As we go through life, we never know when we will be called upon to exhibit this important virtue.  I will forever remember watching my beautiful mother dying of cancer many years ago. Our good-byes were met with the utmost dignity and bravery on her behalf.  We drew upon our faith that we would see each other again one day. As sad as it was for me and my family, her sweet and courageous example has been a shining light in my life. As trials confront us in life, think of those you know and love who have gone through difficult times.  It is my hope that their bravery will wrap you in comfort and an unbreakable faith.
