On April 23rd, I had the opportunity to attend the 12th Annual World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates.
Jody Williams, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize for leading the instatement of an International Treaty banning anti-personnel land mines, talked eloquently about the power of moral courage:
"Each time you stand up for what you believe is right, it makes your muscle stronger. Doing this will define how you will be seen. Far more important, it will define what you see in the mirror".
"Be willing to move beyond physical comfort to a higher moral aspiration..be willing to speak the truth when you are quivering inside".
Words to live by.
