Courage, Honour, Life Lessons

The Blind Side

"Courage is a hard thing to figure.
You can have courage based on a dumb idea or from a mistake, but you’re not supposed to question adults, or your coach or your teacher or your parent, because they make the rules.
Maybe they know best, but then again maybe they don’t.
It all depends on who you are, where you come from.

That’s why courage it’s tricky.....
Should you always do what others tell you to do?
Sometimes you might not even know why you’re doing something.
I mean any fool can have courage.

But Honor, that’s the real reason for you either do something or you don’t.
It’s who you are and maybe who you want to be.
If you die trying for something important, then you have both honor and courage, and that’s pretty good.
You should hope for courage and try for honor.
And maybe even pray that the people telling you what to do have some, too".....Michael Oher

Leigh Anne Touhy played by Sandra Bullock in The Blind Side, is the kind of mother i want to be....a woman that gave the whole of herself to help a child that had no hope in the world!!! Selfless...

Sandra Bullock's character in The Blind Side went above and beyond! If i were in that same situation, i prolly would have sent the kid on his merry way the next day and forgotten all about him!
