The Fear

“I’m afraid of the monsters,” the child quietly said in between her sobbing.

 

“Little Miss,” said the comforting old man. “Yes, there are monsters in the world. They can be horrifying, cruel, and evil, but do not be afraid, because for where there are monsters there are also heroes. Heroes come in different shapes and sizes; some are big and strong while others are small and fast. They may be different but they all share one trait; they choose to be brave. They choose to be brave and fight the monsters when others give into the fear. Do you know what the amazing thing is about heroes? Anyone can be a hero. You just have to choose to be brave.”
