There is No Limit to Courage - Team Honor

“Let it be said that all brave things don’t define you as courageous. You become courageous when you realize there is no limit to all brave things”
- Ally P.

Courage- what really is its definition?

The answer is inside of you. A way of knowing if you have courage is if you think, and truly believe you do. It’s not for somebody else to judge upon, although others may have input and a great impact in your self-bravery. But self-confidence and the courage to go on into something bigger is located all in your mind.  It’s all up to you.

Are you courageous?
If not, be courageous! Is courage, to you, someone who is a daredevil a cliff jumper, or a fire-fighter? Things that take bravery, risk, adventure? It’s your choice. Who do you want to be, to represent? Do you think being courageous is  feeling the sensational rush of knowing you can do something, even if it’s for absolutely no apparent reason? That is the way to express your inner courage, isn’t it?

Courage can also be expressed in a different way, a less physical way. It takes character to think something kind and helpful, but courage is the quality shining through people who put those thoughts into action.  

Nobody want to be bullied-picked on
It’s hard to go through, and at times you feel alone like the whole world has forgotten about you in your time of need. A courageous person is someone who stands up to those bullies, or even ignores them. Also, a witness to tormenting. Somebody who see’s someone all alone getting teased and roughly picked on and takes action. It’s hard to stand up for someone else with the risk of also getting bullied, an action like that takes courage.

United together 
As Team Honor thrive to be courageous in a way that inspires people in a positive way. Every day somebody has achieved that goal, whether it’s realizing that they are capable of anything, or standing up for what they believe in. For our Team, that is who we engage to someday be. School is about learning and enriching our knowledge about education, but the social interactions and experiences can teach us a very valuable lesson about life and what we can do to help others. What does it mean to “Be Courageous”? Well, I think soon enough we’ll all find out...

This first blog post was co-authored by Ally P. and Emily F.

  1. This was a very inspiring piece! Reading over it I couldn't help nod in agreement, I am proud of my Team. I hope everyone can get a chance to express how courageous they can be at some point in the school year and discover that there are no limits to bravery. In my opinion, the sky is not the limit to good and courageous deeds, there is no limits for acts like that!

  2. I couldn't agree with you more Ally- being courageous is never easy. Each of us has it in us to do something special - we just have to believe in ourselves. It also helps when others believe in us too. Personally, I know and believe that each of you has the courage to do amazing things.

  3. I enjoyed reading this post, thank you. It reminds me of something one of my favorite writers said about courage that I used to keep on my desk during college:

    "Whatever you do, you need courage. Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising that tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires some of the same courage that a soldier needs. Peace has its' victories, but it takes brave men and women to win them." ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

  4. Thank you we tried very hard to make this a great blog! I'm glad you liked it! That is a great quote too!
