Each month we announce a new word and list 5 quotes and a poem that adequately conveys that word. The word itself is designed to inspire us and be a reflection of what we are hoping to achieve.
In life we face many challenges, it takes courage to overcome them. Fear can come in many shapes and sizes, we can fear something as small as a spider or as large as an avalanche. Being fearless is about being brave and pushing through that which seems impossible. Why do we need to be fearless? We need to be fearless, because sometimes in life we need to stand up for what we believe in, in order for real change to occur.
Our Top 5 Quotes:

Poem of the Month:
Fear no more.
Fear no more the heat o’ the sun;
Nor the furious winter’s rages,
Thou thy worldly task hast done,
Home art gone, and ta’en thy wages;
Golden lads and girls all must,
As chimney sweepers come to dust.
Fear no more the frown of the great,
Thou art past the tyrant’s stroke:
Care no more to clothe and eat;
To thee the reed is as the oak:
The sceptre, learning, physic, must
All follow this, and come to dust.
Fear no more the lightning-flash,
Nor the all-dread thunder-stone;
Fear not slander, censure rash;
Thou hast finished joy and moan;
All lovers young, all lovers must
Consign to thee, and come to dust.
No exorciser harm thee!
Nor no witchcraft charm thee!
Ghost unlaid forbear thee!
Nothing ill come near thee!
Quiet consummation have;
And renowned be thy grave!
