“It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.”
― J.K. Rowling
Do not accept brutality and cruelty as normal even if it is sanctioned. Protect the vulnerable and encourage the afraid. If you are brave, stand up for others. If you cannot be brave – and it is often hard to be brave – be kind.
I made a list of things that are important to me, and I think it’s especially relevant for each of us to keep our values in mind in these times of change.

I wanted to tell you,
that song, “Major Tom”?
Back there, when
the beard guy was…
He doesn’t know what
he’s talking about.
That song is about courage
and going into the unknown.
It’s a cool song.
– Cheryl Melhoff, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (2013)
