Atticus Finch: Courage

“I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It’s when you know you’re licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what. You rarely win, but sometimes you do”

‘To Kill A Mckingbird’ – Harper Lee

Hats off to the school group, who place the courage of Nike’s commercial promotion alongside the more profound understanding of moral courage.

    I was reminded today of what @LadyP said about fighting for a cause, when Vince Cable spoke up again recently about responsible capitalism.

    It was in this cause that my friend Terry, the founder of People-Centered Economic Development gave his life. He took on Ukraine’s mafia over the plight of disabled children. They didn’t kill him, those who obstructed his efforts did that.

    If you see Vince, Pauline, kick him in the shins for me would you and tell him to ‘get fucking real’ By which I mean, be authentic in government and don’t push others out of the way to enhance your career. Some of us are actually walking his talk.
