STOP AND THINK – Progress depends on human choices and human courage. (Michael J. Gerson, speech-writer and author)

A lot of events and people must be involved in creating the future. It’s not happenstance, and it isn’t fate. As Gerson says, human involvement is required to determine how things will work out in the unknown days ahead. So much depends on making choices—good choices. And, having made them, courageously pursuing their fulfillment is the sure path to success.

Joshua said to them, “Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Be strong and courageous.” (Joshua 10:25)
