Courage Can Take Many Forms
Heroes can be found every day.
Education is their shield,
and the solid sword of justice
has been forged by those
willing to face depravity,
and call it to account.
These advocates have the unenviable task
of facing suffering every day
and finding new ways
to exploit evil’s modus operandi.
This calling requires a certain nobility of spirit,
it’s main intent being to
preserve every child’s right to innocence.
Their innocence supplies us
with the priceless gift of hope.
And to allow evil to hide among us
for fear of whispering its name,
is to further the cause of the enemy.
We must lock arms
and shout from the hilltops,
our voices joined as one,
that we will not allow
our precious children to be victims,
that we stand for them,
and we are many and strong.
