- Courage is a hard thing to figure.
You can have courage based on a dumb idea or a mistake, but you are not
supposed to question adults or your coach or your teacher. Because they
make the rules. Maybe they know the best . . . or maybe they don't. It all
depends on who you come and where they come from. Didn’t at least one
of the six hundred guys think of g i v i n g up and joining with the other side ?
I mean, the Valley of Death! That's pretty salty stuff. That's why courage is tricky ; should you always do what others tell you to do? Sometimes you
might not even know why you do something. I mean, any f o o l can have
courage. But h o n o r, that's the real reason you do something or you don't.
don't. It’s who you are and maybe who you want to be. If you die trying for
something important, then you have both [honor] and [courage], and that's
pretty good. I think that's what the writer was saying, that you should hope
for courage, and try for honor... and maybe even pray that the people telling you what to do, have some too.
