Thank you for this! Where did you find these "statements" at the beginning? They look like a press release or something. Plus, I hadn't understood that the Foundation would work mostly digitally. I thought there was gonna be an office/convention hall somewhere... :flop:

I can't remember what I exactly said but it was along the lines of bravery isn't just being outspoken but is rather about not caring what other people think when you are outspoken

Bravery is a light hidden deep inside of us. It still shines with the dimmest glow in the darkest hour, keeping us strong though we do know know about it. But at times like these, we can't just let it shine dimly, we need to shine brighter than the stars above. We need to stand for what we believe in, even if the rest of the world do not agree -- as long as we believe in what's right and what's good. Bravery is standing up for the weak, speaking for the silenced, seeing for those who can't and acting upon the heart's instinct, whilst some advice from the head. We can't shine brightly alone for the night sky did not boast it's beauty with itself. Faith and trust, peace and unity, love and equality, we're all born superstars. Sometimes, we need bravery to go deep down to our darkest days in order to find our stars, and climb back up with it, strong and shining with courage.
