    I love the character of the scaredy lion because I think in some way or another, all of us are scared of doing things in life. We all have our mountains to climb, our struggles to parse through. It is in the perseverance of our problems and the energy we use to combat that which causes us difficulty that ultimately gives us our badge of courage.
