Courage is a hard thing to figure. You can have courage base on a dumb idea, all mistakes. But you’re not suppose to question the doubts. Or your coach, or your teacher, cause they make the rules. Maybe they know best, but maybe they don’t. It’s all depend on who you are. Where you come from?
There’s at least the six hundred guys thinking about giving up and joining the other side. I mean, valley of death. There’s a pretty salty stuff. That’s why courage is tricky. Should you do what others tell you to do?
Sometimes, you ain’t even know why you’re doing something. I mean, any fool could have courage. But honor, that’s the real reason will you do something or you don’t. It’s who you are, and maybe who you want to be. If you die for trying something important, and you have both honor and courage. And that’s pretty good.
I think that’s the right rode were saying, that you should hope for courage and try for honor. And maybe even pray that the people will telling you what to do, have some too.
