What’s with the pigeon and the lion?

The motto of Courage and Soar came over the course of a decade of conversation between owners Kayla and Alex Benda. Kayla loved the saying, “Courage doesn’t always roar” to describe her personality. At a concert one summer, Alex said out of the blue, “You know, even pigeons soar.” The next morning it all came together.
