Why Take The Time...
...to teach courage to a child? Not to make him more macho, not to turn him into a warrior, but simply to allow him to grow into an ethical adult.
In every case physical courage must be achieved before moral courage can develop. Aside from greed, the factor that keeps most people from doing what is right is that they fear sailing into the wind.
A child who is taught to be fearless and selfless will grow into an ethical, moral adult.
Fearless and selfless.
(The boy shown above is a prime example. I have no doubt that he will grow up to be kind, compassionate,and fearless.)
