Courage to fly.
Courage to fight.
Courage to talk.
Courage to stand.
Courage to walk.
Courage to win.
Courage to lose.
Courage to dream.
Courage to use.
This was written in response to a post my friend put on his blog.
He talked about the followers of the "God hates fags" movement.
He was quite vexed, with reason.

It seems to me that lately, the cool thing to do is to hate people who hate gays.
But don't we just cause more hate by doing this?
It is my opinion, that hate is a result of fear.
But to act upon any emotion, even hatred or fear, requires some degree of courage.
Take fear for example.
Without any courage, one would just freeze and allow whatever happens to happen.
With a little bit of courage, one might have the presence of mind to run away.
With more courage, one might stand and fight.
I think that hate itself is a result of courage, as well as fear.
And, lets face it, the world is a scary place.
It could use some extra courage.

That's okay.
I wanted lots of repetition.
I'm glad you like it. ^-^
I've always had a knack for rhyming.

And yeah, the preview is a spinoff of something a friend of mine drew for a comic on his blog. (In which I made a cameo appearance)
I just changed the dialogue to suit my purposes.
