12:46 pm - Courage
Over the weekend, as I was looking for examples of essays on courage for the Dedicant booklet I was working on, I suddenly remembered that the military keeps their complete list of Medal of Honor recipients online, including the citations.

And I realized that there was probably nothing we could write that would reflect a more perfect example of courage.

So I've placed a recommendation that those who have difficulty understanding courage read through some of the full-text citations on the army's website:

http://www.army.mil/cmh/Moh1.htm

Take a few minutes to read some. The more recent ones are somewhat more verbose and less technical, but they all reflect the courage that won the medal.

I was a bit torn on including the link, I admit: not everyone finds wars courageous. I made sure to talk about other forms of courage, not just that found on the battlefield, and I think that evens it out. We'll see, though :)

courage is multifaceted and is inherent to the individual who acts. It can also be found in people who choose not to act.

Very true. It's an interesting virtue, relly. I enjoyed writing about it.
