“Today I understand that a courageous life is the only one worth living. I come from a Bible-thumping background that wasn’t particularly open or accepting of curiosity….I may not have known it then, but daring to ask questions and redefine right and wrong when everybody around me spoke in absolutes was my first attempt at a courageous life.”
