  5. 5. 7th grade 12­6­12.notebook December 06, 2012  One of the big topics in The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe is courage.  Several characters  show courage as Peter, Susan, Lucy, and several Narnians try to rescue Edmund from the White  Witch.  However, the courage starts long before the Pesinvies ever venture into Narnia.  It took  great courage for the kids’ mother to send them to the professor’s house during the war (12).   She did this in order to protect them from everything, but it must have been difficult for her to  give up her children.  Aer Lucy first enters Narnia, Mr. Tumnus shows courage by sending Lucy  back through the wardrobe instead of turning her over to the White Witch (25).  On the other  hand, Edmund, who also came through the wardrobe aer Lucy, was a coward and volunteered  to bring his siblings to the White Witch.  He then lied Peter and Susan about being in Narnia  (30).  This is also a prey cowardly thing to do.  Later aer Edmund goes to the White Witch, the  Beavers risk their lives to help the children find him and bring him home safe (50).  It takes  courage to bring the children to Aslan…..As the bale for Narnia begins, Peter shows courage  and takes his place as a leader (150).  However, the ulmate display of courage comes from  Aslan as he sacrificed himself for Edmund just as Jesus sacrificed Himself for His children (190).   C.S. Lewis shows that it takes courage to save others, and that people should not be afraid to  show courage when the me is right.    5
