“Blackbird” was Produced by George Martin & Chris Thomas and set into The White Album by The Beatles. The tune was inspired by J.S. Bach’s Bourrée in E minor, a well-known lute piece. I believe this song ties into my theme to a very well simply because the second verse "..Black bird singing in the dead of night Take these sunken eyes and learn to see All your life You were only waiting for this moment to be free Blackbird fly, blackbird fly..." Those lyrics in itself represent having the courage to go head-on into an experience that could lead you to see the light and deep down you knew that moment would arise
This is an Info page made by the Author, Les Brown about his best selling book called, "How to be happy Dammit." It gives you a description of what the book is about and further detail about what the book is about and how his readers see the moral of it. It isn't exactly as clearly tied into my theme like the rest of my pieces but it does play a big part. It mentions this, "too many of us live our lives choosing the familiarity of our rope (aka familiar pain, familiar struggle, familiar patterns), fearful of going for the unknown alternative – which can lead to freedom and ultimate happiness." This touches on the subject that if you let the fear control what you'll do you want exactly be able to do things that you could do with it ending in a far better result.

My main focus on this Wikipedia page was the Islamic Tradition found further down the page because their belief is that lions symbolize courage, bravery, royalty, and chivalry. They showed this in their calligraphy to represent what lions would do to represent such things. I believe this ties in with my theme simply due because lions do many things to show courage, strength, and all the things the Islamic people and many others lead to believe with somewhat of a passion, when you think of courage usually the first thing to come across your mind are things like black panthers or lions (black panthers are also represented as courage in other religions.)
This rhyme describes the numerous of things that courage can do in a poem composition. I believe this ties into my theme because its a poem about what courage can do to make a person who they are and what it does in general, its describing the emotions and functions of Courage as if it itself were a person with its own moral and mindset of things but its just inside of each and every one of us, we just need to learn how to take care of it and not let fear take over.
This article is about a sculpture made by Tom Murphy and 29 temporary residents of Southwood bail hostel in Aigburth. The Sculpture wouldn't usually have the opportunity to be made but it was funded by North West Arts and with a grant from the National Lottery. The sculpture signifies reinventing yourself and becoming a new you as long as you have the faith and courage to do so. This article fits with my theme because the whole sculpture is symbolizing that as long as you have the courage and faith in yourself from head to toe you can become better, a new masterpiece worth sitting down and appreciating but it takes the hard work and help of others to do so.
