Episode #101: The Courage of Life
The “what” is easy. Craftwork is a specialty coffee shop and vibrant membership-based workspace with locations in Fort Worth (Foundry, Camp Bowie, Magnolia) and Austin (Domain). We serve craft coffee and are a connected coworking space. But you knew that already. Our “why” is our heart – we desire to create spaces and places where our members and customers experience connection and community.
We’d like to take a moment to honor those who have sacrificed for our country. We could think of no better way to do so than calling upon the words of a past leader, John F. Kennedy. In his book, Profiles in Courage, Kennedy wrote:
“The courage of life is often a less dramatic spectacle than the courage of a final moment, but it is no less a magnificent mixture of triumph and tragedy. People do what they must – in spite of personal consequences, in spite of obstacles and dangers and pressures – and that is the basis of all human morality.”
The Courage of Life: The brave men and women who have gone before us each exemplified tremendous courage, not only by sacrificing their life but by living. Whether they pursued a dream, started a family, or faced tremendous odds, there is no doubt that they lived with the courage of life.
Kennedy has also said, “As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” What values do we live out in spite of personal consequences and obstacles? Each of these men and women has sacrificed for us in a monumental way, despite the personal consequences they and their families have faced. Let us honor them by living with the “no less magnificent” courage of life, today and every day.
