Teacher's Note: This was in response to the prompt of Amelia Earhart's famous quote, "Courage is the price life exacts for granting peace."

I woke up this morning with this word--courage--in my heart. Everybody needs somebody who will be there, someone to wipe the tears and make you smile, and if you need someone who will not judge you when you fall, no matter what you have done, my courage will answer when you call. So after your friends have walked away and run out of words to say, after you tried everything else, then try courage. Even though others hurt you and sometimes call you names, your courage is unconditional. That means that it will never ever change. So after the wind has blown and done and you still won't turn blue and you are not sure about what to do, let courage come!
