HONOR
For any person, any society, any nation to remain strong, honor must be one of the values to live by. Strength is not only a physical trait but it can also be woven into the spiritual and philosophical threads that bind a person’s character and that of any society or nation as well. There is no true strength without honor. Without honor, there is only force without reason or compassion. Without honor, strength is only a brute weapon, and the consequence is that “might makes right.” Furthermore, honor must be applied to all the many aspects of life, be it friendship or politics, words or deeds, peace or war. Without honor, a warrior is defined only by the weapons in his hand and not by what is truly in his heart as a human being. Without honor, a warrior acts only with the weapons in his hand and not by the values that make him a person first.

COURAGE

Courage is not exclusive to any one person or calling or to any situation or circumstance. In a world that is constantly in motion, each of us has much to face each and every day. From the simple to the complex, from the mundane to the heartstopping, each of us has to live our lives with the strengths and the weaknesses we have. We should not blame our weaknesses or yearn for the strengths we do not have; we should instead use who and what we are, at any given moment in our lives, to enable ourselves to take the next step and the next after that. That is courage. As the world swirls around us, having courage is the only way to move with it and face what it will bring.
