The difference maker for me is family, little ones who depend on me. When there are other, helpless people in the house, being brave no longer consists of just not fearing what will happen. Because the standard for success is changed -- I don't just have to survive, or get away, or live through something. I have to prevail. I have to be able to reverse the situation, and overcome an assailant. Failure means my helpless family hurt. And with that in mind, I need any tool I can use to change the equation in my favor.
