True Courage

I went to a Young Women's program with my daughter last night. One of the speakers was Lisa Carter from West Yellowstone. Her topic was courage. She had been discussing this at a family gathering and asking for opinions.

Her older sister, who has gone back to college, said, "I think it takes courage to go back to school at 53."

Lisa's daughter piped up, "I think it takes courage to go to school at 50 below."

They never, never cancel school because of weather in West Yellowstone.

I'm torn between feeling like a whimp because I don't like to go outside if it is below freezing and feeling smart for not living in West Yellowstone.
