courage by Helen Keller: Socially Sparked quote of the week
Helen Keller (1880 - 1968)


Helen Keller’s quote on courage is actually part of a quote on the state of security and living without fear.

“Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.” — Helen Keller

Keller’s words reflect exactly how the nation and the world react and respond to terrorism today. We do not cede to it, and we are not going to live in fear. Rather, we strive to address it, prevent it and eradicate it. — We are Socially Sparked! — Tweet us @sosparkednews
