What is Courage?

  1. 1. couarge <ul><li>This slideshow is about courage, but my main focus is the type of courage that requires strength. This type of courage pushes one to the right thing to save others or to overcome a personal obstacle that many people may face. </li></ul>
  2. 2. There are simply no words to express the amount of courage this woman had to do what she did, or better yet what she didn’t do. Despite the “what if’s” she did what was right even though the majority did not agree. If that is not courage, then what is?
  3. 3. <ul><li>This photograph is only more proof to what the power of courage can lead you to do. The courage that lead countless others to stand by her side. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>This photo represents the millions who lost their lives while protecting our country and others. Even though many do not justify the killing, doesn’t what they sacrificed count for something? </li></ul>
  5. 5. Soldiers in action <ul><li>These soldiers here are running through a river. They show courage by being in the army, no matter the risk, in order to protect our country. They are heroes. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Here are rescuers aiding a man that has been caught in an avalanche, despite the risk they run of getting caught in an avalanche themselves.
  7. 7. Dog and avalanche rescue <ul><li>This photograph goes to show that having courage does not only apply to humans. Even though animals cannot worry about the risk of another avalanche, they show courage by withstanding the extreme temperatures. </li></ul>
  8. 8. When the unexpected happens, there are always a few people to help when it is needed.
  9. 9. <ul><li>Even if means doing the near impossible. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Many times during a protest, things can get out of hand, but luckily there are people brave enough to try to keep the peace and prevent injuries.
  11. 11. Shanksville plane crash <ul><li>Many of us remember that fateful day, September 11, 2001, when the world seemed to come to a halt and for some lives it did, permanently. However, the people onboard this plane did not go down without a fight, even though it was lost from the start. Nevertheless, they helped save many lives and for that they deserve the greatest honor. </li></ul>
  12. 12. <ul><li>T his cancer patient, now a survivor, has had to endure much yet she persevered. She withstood all of the pain and suffering. She beat the odds and many hopefully will be inspired and will gain courage and follow her example in fighting back against what life throws at you. </li></ul>
  13. 13. <ul><li> Courage, what is courage? There are many types of courage in this world and I mainly chose this topic to show the type of courage that, in my opinion is truly worthy of praise, However, at the start of this project, I did not recognize that or the difference between one type and another. As my work progressed I realized that there are two main types of courage: one that is needed to do right and one that is needed for fun (such as sky-diving). Without this project, I honestly think I would not have have realized that. My hope is that everyone who sees this slideshow will show some of this type of courage more often. I also hope that we as a whole can overcome the “what if’s” and do the right thing. </li></ul>
