What exactly is courage?

We live in a military community where men and women leave here to go in harms way to "protect and defend." They do so leaving behind their families and loved ones.

When Erin Harrington (pictured below with Bunny) came to piano Monday afternoon, she came holding a tiny American flag that the Red Cross had given her. Erin, her mom Karen, and big brother Jonathan had just come back from seeing dad, Major Sean Harrington off as he left for a deployment to Afghanistan.

Don't be fooled by that sweet smile (either of them :) )

Courage. She has it.
