BuMjr BoWard At tlrno, umt people contuse the dutiaetton .between courage end oowtrdlce. Courtc* dot* not alwiyt imply *& ibeenee of rttr; nor doe» cowardice always Imply an exceu of (e»r. Common aente linked with conscience la Involved In the dlitlnctlon. For example, tome people think it Ukei courage to *p*M past a ear on a hill or curve. Screeching tlrei, shrieking voice:, swerving carl, and often head on collisions point an accusing linger toward that kind of courage. Since common MDM did not prevail and ilnoe a lack of conscience tot a possible tragedy did prevail, WM the driver really courageous — or cowardly? Courage with a conscience glvee ua strength to face distinctions between right and wrong, between the things we should do and should not do. At times, It may even take courage to be classed as a coward. But as long as common sense Is used with a clew conscience, cowardice la glorified 'beyond that of courage. | - Life requires boldness. Boldness requires ceureg*. But courage should never create tragedy or destruction when such catutrophles can be avoided . . . MBS. BUDDY HOWARD,. HOWARD FUNERAL ROME.
