Dare to be

The other day during the inaugural mass of the Xavier Catholic Educational Board, there was this particular reflection read out after Communion. Quite apt for the occasion and meaningful too:
When something new begins, dare to smile gratefully,
When there is darkness, dare to be the first to shine a light. 
When there is injustice, dare to be the first to condemn it. 
When something seems difficult, dare to do it anyway. 

When life seems to beat you down, dare to fight back. 
When there seems to be no hope, dare to find some. 
When you're feeling tired, dare to keep going. 
When times are tough, dare to be tougher. 

When love hurts you, dare to love again.
When someone is hurting, dare to help them heal.
When another is lost, dare to help them find the way.
When someone fails, dare to be the first to extend a hand. 

When you cross paths with another, dare to make them smile. 
When you feel great, dare to help someone else feel great too.
When the day has ended, dare to feel as you've done you best. 
Dare to be the best we can. 

At all times, ...
