But nothing ventured, nothing gained, right?
If you've thought about traveling to the Middle East but are afraid that something "bad" might happen to you, then this means that you allow fear to rule your life instead of your courage.
"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
Find your courage, always.
-- Rachel Naddor
