2016-2017 YEAR OF COURAGE AT LYNDON

What is courage? According to Merriam-Webster, courage is:  the ability to do something that you know is difficult or dangerous.  Courage helps us to face change, to take risks.  Courage helps us to reach out to others when we need help.  Courage allows us to be compassionate.  Courage is an integral component of social justice.

I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear — Nelson Mandela

Courage and social justice are inextricably intertwined.  Embracing social justice creates communities in which all voices are not just heard but are listened to. Social justice ensures that all people are given the respect they deserve. A socially-just community is one in which all members are given the opportunities and support they need to succeed.
