Their Words, My Thoughts

“What really counts is not the immediate act of courage or of valor, but those who bear the struggle day in and day out.” -JFK 1962

Although this quote obviously applies to the brave servicemen and women of our country, as a former teacher I can’t help apply it to other life situations as well- a person quietly struggling with a disorder, or the family/friends that care for them day in and day out. In both cases, there are unsung heroes; those who live their best life despite the setbacks dealt them and those who consistently give of themselves for the sake of someone else. Both are courageous and valiant in my eyes.
