When I first heard this song, I cried. Mostly because it reminds me of everything that is going on with my mother. I found out in October that my mother has Stage 4 Colon Cancer and that it has metastasized on her liver. It is hard to talk about still. She has gone through 5 bouts of chemo and she has another 7 to go. After that she is having some strong medicine that is going to go straight to her liver. The day I found out she had cancer I went home and screamed. I couldn't believe it. I wanted to run away and that it was so wrong. The chorus of Brave is me exactly in this time right now. 'You wanna run away, run away and you say that it can't be so. You wanna look away, look away but you stay cause' it's all so close. When you stand up and hold out your hand.
In the face of what I don't understand. My reason to be brave." My mother is my reason to be brave. I know that I am hers.
