This week is the annual Amateur Youth Circus in Peru, Indiana, open to Miami County kids ages 6 thru 21. The top photo shows a young teen walking on a wire, and below it is a time-lapse photo of two other teens on the flying trapeze. Of course there are safety nets, but performers still learn skills that last a lifetime -- skills like trusting your friends, self-confidence, practice-makes-perfect, teamwork, and for the kids on the flying trapeze, FAITH AND COURAGE to release the bar at exactly the right moment; reach out both arms into space while flying, and know your partner to be there to catch your wrists in mid-air. When this happens, the audience explodes with joy, and it happens OFTEN. To learn more, visit http://www.peruamateurcircus.com/
