Courage Blessing

There are many brave people and brave actions in the world. There are many different ways to be brave. This is for all the brave ones out there.

Courage Blessing

I bless the courage of the protester who stands empty-handed in front of the guns
I bless the courage of those who lay down their guns
I bless the courage of the mother who opens her home and heart to others’ children
I bless the courage of all who see a stranger crying and stop to ask what’s wrong
I bless the courage of those who run into the fire to save the lives of others
I bless the courage of she who speaks up in the face of wrong, knowing it might bring trouble
I bless the courage of ze who stares hir fears in the face and walks forward anyway
I bless the courage of those who free the entrapped and I bless also the courage of those who stand aside and honor the right of the oppressed to forge their own path to freedom
I bless the courage of everyone whose hands do the work of their hearts, weaving a better world for us all.
