In a moment of fear and uncertainty, we have to choose one.
Flight would be the easier choice. You can sum up all kinds of excuses to justify your lack of guts to the point of fooling yourself. But what good is a coward to this world. Fighting life's challenges is never easy, but it makes you a stronger person. You can't win all the time. You'll probably get wounded and hurt like nothing else, but wounds heal over time. You will learn for yourself that no battle is impossible to fight, with faith and courage on your side.
