Courage is displayed at unexpected moments.
What I do in such moments can change me, and those around me.
A spy was sentenced to death by a Persian General. The General had a strange custom, – giving condemned criminals the choice of a firing squad, or the ‘big door’. When the General asked what will it be, the spy chose the firing squad.
Turning to his aide he said, they always prefer the known to the unknown, yet we gave them a choice. The aide asked, what is beyond the big door. The General replied,‘Freedom‘, then he added,
Few are brave enough to take that door.
Therefore be strong and of good courage, and then do it.
