Today in the U.S., we honor courage. We remember those whose sacrifice has helped to make our collective life here more full of opportunity. We are grateful for their willingness to push past uncertainty, discomfort and fear in the name of something greater than themselves. We are inspired by the articulation of their intentions in actions, and their ability to be both present in the moment and motivated by the greater good – our greater good – at once.
“The bravest are surely those who have the clearest vision of what is before them, glory and danger alike, and yet notwithstanding, go out to meet it.” – Thucydides
