Guest Post: Courage to take the coin

Guest post by Catherine McNiel:
My child finds a nickel forgotten on the ground. He picks it up and with shining eyes tosses it haphazardly into the air. The coin crashes back to the ground and rolls away. “Heads or tails, mom?” he shouts, racing after it. There are two sides to every coin. Two sides to every door. This is different from saying there are two coins, or two doors. This means that every coin has both sides. Every door has coming and going, open and closing.
