We are taught to understand, correctly, that courage is not the absence of fear, but the capacity for action despite our fears.

~ John McCain ~

If you live in the United States, you’ve probably already heard that Senator John McCain has been diagnosed with one of the most virulent forms of brain cancer. When you hear Senator McCain’s name, two words usually come to mind: Hero and Patriot. While I oftentimes disagree with his politics, Senator McCain is someone I’ve always respected and admired. He’s a man who on numerous occasions has shown his willingness to put country before party. Having survived five years of captivity and torture at the hands of the North Vietnamese, if anyone can beat this, it’s this Maverick of the Senate. While Washington and our country remains divided, I think one thing we can all agree on, is sending our thoughts, prayers, and best wishes to Senator McCain and his family.
