When was the last time you witnessed the moral courage of someone who stood for what was right?
Has there been a time when someone you knew or know of who had the courage to stand for something that was right even though they may of had something to loose as a result?
The little boy who was killed in Boston, who attended a charter school. He wrote a statement standing up for Peace, at a very young age. His thinking was Right Thinking. I did not know him personally, but I admire his spirit.

I'd like to answer this question by making it personal: when was the last time that I had the moral courage to stand up for what is right?
It's not really answering your question, but it makes us think, doesn't it? Do we stand up and be counted, or do we just try and melt away in the crowd?
Sometimes it seems so much easier to do the latter, even when our conscience is telling us otherwise. Thank you for asking such a thought-provoking question.
Each and every day, in so many people. I know many people who are ill or disabled. Their courage in just getting out of bed every day inspires me. And in so many wonderful writers willing to speak their truth here on HubPages. I see the courage there, as well. Each and every day, every addict who does not take that first drink or drug, and every person who is prone to anger who does not yell or hit.
Those are the most recent times. Yes, I can recount stories of particular heroism, but your question inspired me to see the heroism in each of us in living each day.
A while ago. I was talking to one of the office staff at work. She was being forced to manipulate an office record by a manager (the "star" manager). She stood ground and told her supervisor about it. The supervisor took over the issue from there. The office staff got a good compliment from management.
The question is great. We are so accustom to noticing the "car wreck" on the side of the road, we forget the woman who slowed and let an idiot into her lane and avoided catastrophe.
Money lent knowing it would not be paid back. A hug to a sick contagious person. And the bestest of the mostest are mothers on a daily basis.
I also like lay ministers/pastors. That giving on time is awesome. The "good Samaritans" are everywhere.
the newest--- the valedictorian that tore up his approved speech and gave a testimony of CHrist and the need for Him.

Why is it easier to edit the writing of others than our own?I've noticed that if I am working on an editing assignment; I can easily spot mistakes and fix them. When I edit my own, even after taking a break after writing it; it can be difficult to see and hear my own mistakes. The...

When was the last time you personally witnessed God working in a situation?I am talking a time when everything should have happened a certain way but unexplainible did something different. During the entire process you could not help but feel the presents of God!

What holds more weight, Morality or legality?I'll use a two people example first: Penn State which legally fulfilled their obligation but morally let kids get molested. Second: Mitt Romney legally becoming wealthy while morally didn't invest in America. This can be said for marriage, Religion,...
