Standing up to the inequalities, racism and prejudice that is so prevalent in the world today requires courage, vim & vigour. Many are marching to stand up for their rights and freedom, or for those of others. Confrontation is uncomfortable, and scary at times. But we are stronger as a community - especially when standing in unity for goodness. If you have fire in your belly that's busting to get out, you'll need to muster up some MOXIE!
MOXIE means courage, nerve, vigour, or fortitude
Having moxie means having enough cleverness, skill, creativity, & fortitude to solve a difficult or threatening situation.
Word Origin and History:
Etymology sources suggest the earliest record of the word "Moxie" was in New England area where the Abenaki people's used it to mean "dark water". There is a lake, river and waterfall named Moxie. In 1885 there was a medicine patented Moxie, which advertised to "build up your nerve;" In 1930 Moxie was branded as a bitter, soft drink, which is still available in the USA today.
