Courage, wishes and hope on Bankers Hill.

Courage is not the absence of fear, but the ability to conquer it.

Walk up Fifth Avenue in Bankers Hill and you’re likely to see some inspiring chalk art. Words of wisdom prompt those passing by to think about courage, wishes and hope. Here are some photos.

Two of the life affirming messages adorn a community library box located next to the front entrance of a safe haven for the homeless. A brave lion roars nearby. Uptown Safe Haven features transitional housing, supportive services, and hope. It is the project of Episcopal Community Services. The chalk art speaks of their mission.

      1. Yeah… I think it more realistic (& helpful) to focus on realizing we can cope with our fears, live a happy & healthy life despite the inevitability of experiencing fear, than to think we must (or can) “conquer” it.
