Throughout the years, there were men and
women who took their first steps down
roads armed with mothing but their own vision.--Ayn Rand
I love the picture these words create, of courageous individuals forging a path into the unknown. When I think of people who have done this, I think of Daniel Boone, taking his family to a wilderness, of Brigham Young leading the Saints to another kind of wilderness. I think of those who have taken the first steps toward beating their cancer by undergoing grueling chemotherapy. I think of my husband and his partner starting a business with nothing but two used computers and a dream.
Each took steps down an unknown road. Each was armed with a vision. Each found the courage to continue even when everything seemed against them.
So, for today, I am grateful for the men and women who never gave up.
