Bravery is facing an entire empire to save a small nation. Though Esther, or Hadassah, was living in the lap of luxury and protected in the natural by the power of her husband the king, she risked her very life to save the lives of all her people. In that day, she was occupying the office of queen since the last queen was cast out for not coming when the king called for her to come to the feast. Now, in the midst of another feast, here comes Esther UNINVITED to ask the king for a favor. She was filled with more faith than fear thus she went unsummoned before the king and saved the lives of all Jews.
