The beginning of the twenty-first century brought with it many challenges. The evolution of technology during this time period led to many societal changes. Our world became smaller with increased access to information. People began to relate to each other through machines rather than face-to-face. Centuries old education practices were forced to evolve to meet the high demands of a world with greater access to information. World economies shifted. Many people lost jobs. "Profiles in Courage" explores how a person approaches and handles the challenges of the twenty-first century.
The human face is intriguing. A lifetime of stories are hidden within its contours. The eyes are the window to the soul. Unfortunately in our fast paced, high tech lives we neglect opportunities to look at each other face to face. Instead, we glance upon profiles of heads bowed to electronic devices. A person's profile provides limited insight into her psyche. When you only have access to her profile, you must depend on other clues to determine what is going on within her. "Profiles in Courage" examines these clues.
