You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to understand that killing innocent children for money is wrong. You don’t have to be a bioethicist to know that taking the life of an innocent human being is wrong. Most of us know the difference between right and wrong but many of us lack the courage of conviction to defend those who are not able to defend themselves. Many of us wish we had the courage to stand up for innocent babies but most of us will leave that task to others.
You don’t have to be a super-hero to be courageous, you simply have to know what you are willing to risk everything for. I’ve reached the point in my life where I no longer care about money and possessions or being one of the cool kids. I know that speaking out in defense of life is the right thing to do and I’m willing to accept the consequences of my actions. That’s why I wrote the following piece on Courage last May.
Cour-age: the quality of being fearless or brave; valor; pluck. I believe that the courage of one’s convictions is the true test of character. How many who will read this have the courage to defend an innocent life, whatever the cost? Too many of us choose to dwell in the past or rely on the future; ignoring the clear and present opportunity to save lives and to change the world. With all due respect to Webster’s New World Dictionary, I disagree with their definition of courage. Courage, in my view, is doing what you know is right and of benefit to others in spite of your fear of failure, ridicule, or risk to your wellbeing. It is taking a leap of faith and knowing that the cause you are willing to risk everything for is worth it. It’s wanting nothing for your efforts other than the outcome you seek.
