Courage is a capability to confront fear, as when in front of the powerful and mighty, not to step back, but to stand up for one’s rights not to be humiliated or abused in any way by the rich and powerful.

Courage is to do the right thing in spite of danger and fear. To keep on even if opportunities to turn back are given. Like in the great stories. The ones where people have lots of chances of turning back — but don’t.

Dignity, a better life, or justice and rule of law, are things worth fighting for. Not to step back — in spite of confronting the mighty and powerful — creates courageous acts that stay in our memories and mean something — as when women today in Iran and around the world burn their headscarves and cut their hair in protest of the Iranian government’s restrictions on social freedoms.
