What is courage? Courage is always doing the right thing even when it's hard to, and showing bravery. For example Firefighters, they are very brave and save alot of lives. Then of course the same thing goes for Soldiers, and Policemen, well the list goes on. These people are very brave and we should be thankful to have them protecting us. Alot of times courage does not come easy. It can come in many different ways. Sometimes its something simple, and maybe not a very big deal. For example just giving a speech or something in front of your peers. Other times it might be something very important like a firefighter running into a burning building and saving some peoples life. Another example could be something like a Policeman rescueing hostages at a bank robbery. Then there are those that have the most courage of all in my opinion, and that is Soldiers. I think they have the most courage of all! They protect our country, and even risk their life. Many of them even have familys, wife and kids. I am sure there familys worry about them alot. And I'm sure the Soldiers miss their family alot when at war. As I stated before "corurage comes in many different ways" so what I listed (Firefighters, Policemen, Soldiers) are just a few examples of people showing courage. I think courage is one of the most important things in life. If there was no such thing as courage, what would the world be like? I for one think it would not be a very pleasent place. There wouldnt be much motivation to do the right thing would there? Thank you for taking the time to read this. Zakk. This is just the rough draft, so what do ya'll think? What do I need to improve on? Thanks.
