Angela, This is beautiful and I enjoyed reading it. The word that springs to mind is courage because to do the right things, more often than not, requires courage. We have challenges every day and sometimes we look for the easy way out, we compromise, we retreat and we make feeble excuses whereas we need to take to heart the words of Joshua, "...Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest." (Joshua 1:9) Your writing style is uncluttered and direct and your points are cohesive and well laid out. Keep writing and sharing your thoughts. I've read both your articles and want to read more. Blessings on you.
