Real Courage

We often see newscasts or documentaries showing tales of human courage.

The other day I saw a television show about dogfights. One story was about two U.S. fighter pilots who attacked a formation of 50 German planes. They flew among the German planes causing confusion and making it difficult for the enemy to shoot at them. How brave they must have been to attack against such overwhelming odds.

I have also seen other acts of courage, such as a child taking an extended leave from work to care for an elderly parent, or a parent working hard while caring for a child with a severe illness.

Those who risk their lives for our country are heroes. Those who arrange their lives to care for loved ones in need are also heroes.
