My Son, Mattie J. T. Stepanek

By: Jeni Stepanek
Jeni Stepanek shares with us how her son Mattie was her hero.

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.
To keep our faces toward change and
behave like free spirits
in the presence of fate 
is strength undefeatable.

by Helen Keller
Let Us Have Faith (1940)
