The following excerpt is from one of my favorite movies “Act of Valor”
at the very end of the movie are the timeless words of wisdom which if we abide by, would make our world a better place to live in.
But first let’s go back to the ABC’s and get the definition of this symbolic noun.
Valor by definition means: courage, fearlessness, courageousness, braveness, heroism, boldness, gallantry, daring, fortitude.
“Live your life such that the fear of death can never enter your heart
trouble no one about his/her religion
respect others and their views and demand they respect yours
love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life
seek to make you life long and of service to your people
when your turn comes to die,
be not like those whose hearts who are filled with fear of death
so that when the time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way
sing your death song
and die like a hero going home.”
My favorite definition of Valor is Fortitude which in simple terms means Strength of mind that allows one to endure pain or adversity with courage.
May you have that mental toughness to live your life with Valor.
