Children Of Courage Awards

I was recently made aware that the Yorkshire Children Of Courage Awards are looming on the horizon and they are seeking nominees. Most years, awards are dished out to children with life threatening diseases, disabilities and general hard luck stories. Now I accept that the circumstances that surrounds these children's lives is unfortunate, but it doesn't take courage to be sick, disabled or unlucky. I want to see awards presented to children that show true courage in the face of adversity.

I witnessed one such child the other day that left me truly overwhelmed. A ginger kid that went to an everyday state funded school. Now that shows true courage!

  1. Ginger kids often escape bullying because nobody wants to touch them. I think it is probably due to their strange odour.

  8. In America, gingers are called redheads. They still carry the same social stigma.

    2. If Carol is permanently on heat, is that such a BAD thing? and if she IS always on heat, I certainly hope she doesn't spontaneously combust!! That would be SUCH a tragedy!
