September POWerful Word – COURAGE – Week 1

People show courage everyday in different ways. From firefighters to police officers to your teachers, parents and friends, people need to face their fears and be brave. Some show courage by saving people from burning buildings while other people might show courage by trying a task that has never been done before or showing up to a new class even when they feel scared. If your little brother, little sister, or younger friend wanted to know what courage meant, what would you say? Who in your own life, in books you’ve read, or in history, do you think showed courage? Can you tell if someone is scared just by looking at them? How might we be able to tell if someone is scared just by looking at them (i.e. teeth clenched, shoulders hunched)? Now, show us how someone with courage stands. Yes!

If you have time: What is the bravest thing you’ve done? Do you think many leaders are brave- why?
