"What is real courage?" In the book, Gates of Fire: The Battle of Thermopylae, by Steven Pressfield, the warriors of Sparta discuss true courage. They distinguish it from the absence of fear or fear of failure. Many things can motivate acts of valor, but not all valor is motivated by courage! Courage is distinct from fear. True courage is a feminine trait, found especially in mothers!

The school year is coming to an end for some and it's a great thing, while for others, not so much. Many of us are going to miss the friends we made throughout the year. But keeping in touch with those friends and building relationships outside of school is what matters.

Safety Spotlight

In Georgia, all-terrain vehicle (ATV) riding is an all-time favorite pastime, where most riders enjoy the experience of off-road activities such as trail riding and "mudding". ATVs are powerful equipment, with some weighing more than 800 pounds and having the ability to exceed 50 mph. To exacerbate the safety concerns is the ATV's high center of gravity and the lack of roll bars, safety cages, or seatbelts. Simply stated, ATVs roll easily and can throw riders or worse-roll onto riders; with the potential of causing serious injuries.

Chaplain Corner

Growing up I had heard many ministers use an old adage that went something like, "An idle mind is the devil's playground." The idea was that if a person kept their mind busy they were less likely to get into trouble. Although there is some real truth to such a wise saying, it is not enough to just keep one's mind busy.

Volunteering if Great

Volunteering is a great way to support your community. Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield and surrounding areas have plenty of volunteer opportunities. Now is the perfect time to volunteer because school is about to end and although volunteer hours are not required at various schools anymore, this is a good way to learn new skills and build your resume.

Beautiful Day

April showers bring May flowers. The last few weeks have been pretty rainy and even a little cool at times. But Mother Nature made up for it and the past few days have been bright and sunny. Why not enjoy it while you can? This is perfect weather for spending time outside like going to the beach and listening to music, playing at the park with friends, or simply soaking up the sun rays by the pool. Most of us are on spring break and having fun is all over our "spring break list."

We all know that plants and trees are the earth's source of oxygen. With the great amount of pollution, it can be harder to breathe in pure air. Having plants actually in your home is more beneficial than you may think.

How to beat bullying

Bullying. We have all heard the word, but do we really know what it means? The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (2018) vaguely defines bullying as unwanted, aggressive behavior among school aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance that causes distress or harm in the child being bullied. In reading that definition, we may conclude that bullying is some form of aggressive physical behavior towards another.

Following the Bergamini Family in WWII

Our influence in the South Pacific is hotly contested. The United States has been involved militarily in this region three times during the last century.

Be content by finding balance

The Jewish mystic Maharal observed the word "Shalom" begins with the Hebrew root word "Shin", indicating God's peace begins with balance. From that balance, we can transcend our current struggles and discover the joy, peace, confidence and security of being with God. However, without the balance that integrates us into being complete people, none can properly live in God's presence. Maharal contended that life should be spent seeking the balance point between the unhealthy extremes. A happy mid-point can bring contentment to life.

Love serves the beloved

The flowers have wilted and been thrown away. The chocolates have all been eaten and the box is gone. That special dress has been dry-cleaned and is hanging in a plastic bag in the closet.

Summer break is sadly coming to an end and school is about to begin. Starting to prepare ahead of time is important. Many of us like to stay up late during the summer, so getting your sleep schedule back on track is important before starting school again. You do not want to be drained during the first couple of weeks of the new school year.

Chaplain's Corner

I have long been fascinated with hourglasses. As a little boy, I can remember having an hourglass and turning it over and over again just to watch the sand slowly fall to the bottom. However, my fascination with the hourglass as a little boy is quite different from my fascination with the hourglass today.

Summer break is where a lot of memories are created and as time goes on, we tend to forget about them. Writing your most memorable and exciting memory down in a journal is what can capture your memories for a lifetime; it's also where you can tweak them a little to your liking.
