Courage is more than fighting dragons. The “Courage is Needed” t-shirt is about honesty, forgiveness, hope, serenity, loyalty, and kindness, among others. Courage is about being true to yourself and upholding your values, even when faced with pressure from others.
This is an important message, made attractive to kids by the presence of a dragon in the design. Dragons have always been a favorite among children, and even adults find them intriguing. The design strikes the perfect balance between being just scary enough for kids and elegant enough for adults.
The back of the T-shirt features a quote by Maya Angelou that reinforces the message on the front: “Courage is the most important of all the virtues because without courage, you cannot consistently practice any other virtue.” This T-shirt serves as a reminder to everyone, regardless of age, to embrace courage and other virtues in their daily lives.
The design comes in metallic gold ink on Black or Maroon T-shirt in adult sizes or Black and Red in youth sizes.
The gold is not foil, but the metallic ink does have a nice shimmer to it, as you can see in the close-up picture.
As a reference, my model is a 60-pound 8-year-old. The black T-shirt is a kid’s S 6-8.
Note: The design is really too big for an XS (2-4) kid’s shirt. For that size, I recommend our Illumine My Heart or our interfaith World Citizen shirts.
