CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
“A life lived without ever tasting the tears that come with desperation is a life that also will never know courage” Courage is the result of a decision made out of desperation, and they’re actually one in the same. Rarely is a decision made to be courageous, it’s usually not even a decision at all. It’s an action performed when there is no decision to make, only desperate action which is the result of dire circumstance.

Those desperate circumstances (and therefore courageous acts) aren’t always someone running into a burning building. Sometimes it’s a father working every minute of overtime available to make sure his kids eat. Courage isn’t always loud, but we need to recognize the acts and how they’re made and what desperation the person was in and the struggles they were facing.
