Courage is when someone does something for non-selfish reasons, no matter how frightening it may be. It’s not just physical bravery that can be considered courage, just speaking out can be just as powerful. A person is courageous when they make decisions that help positively affect another person's life. It means you stick up for what's right no matter the consequences that follow. People can express courage through following their hearts, standing up for what’s right, and expanding their horizons.

In the chapter “Notes”, Tim O’Brien explains where his inspiration for the previous chapter, “Speaking of Courage”, comes from. He received a letter from his old friend Norman Bowker talking about how he lacks purpose in life after the war, how nothing seems real or worthwhile to him anymore. He explains how he read O’Brien’s other book and asks him to write a chapter about a war veteran in his own situation. Eventually, O’Brien writes the chapter to fit into his current narrative. He sends the published chapter to Norman and he says that it’s alright, but it’s missing key points; it’s missing the whole point. Later on, Norman hangs himself and O’Brien rewrites the chapter the way it was meant to be and puts it into his new book, The Things They Carried.
Courageous Actions A courageous action most often is associated with reaching a goal or task of importance, despite the dangers even risks associated with it (“Courage”). For any specific act to be considered truly courageous it must be reasonably thought about and determined that the goal is well worth the risk or danger (“Courage”). Courage so often can be put with words such as heroic, and bravery although with courage there can be a fine line between courageous acts and plain foolishness. All this can make people believe that courage only applies to physical actions. There are two kinds of courage moral and physical in many cases they are both displayed in a single courageous act; however, bravery must come before all else, because they are associated with reaching a task of importance regardless of risk.

The word courage has been tossed around for centuries. From Christopher Columbus to Drake. The definition is knowing that something scares the living daylights out of you, but facing it anyway. The thing is, there are many different ways to look at courage. For example, perhaps a book about courage. Let's take The Schwa Was Here by Neal Shusterman. The book relates to courage because it show many examples of it by explaining some dares, challenges and messes two kids, one half Invisible, go through. The main person who shows courage is The Schwa, because he has to listen to a bothersome story, sneak into a cranky mans house, even though the whole town is scared of it, and gets in trouble with airport security.
Oxford defines courage as the ability to do something that frightens one. Courage isn’t necessarily being strong, or doing something that other don't want to do, it can be small acts, such as swimming in the ocean even though sharks are feared. Courage is having the ability to overcome a fear, no matter how big or small it is. In Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird, Atticus Finch, Scout Finch, and Boo Radley all display courage.
This book describes different senators who show courage as defined by John F Kennedy. He defines courage as "taking an action on principle, knowing that it will likely cost re-election." Although he is mostly referring to senators throughout this book, this definition can be used for any person who takes action on principle, regardless of the social sacrifice. I see this kind of courage everyday. The everyday courage might not be on the same scale as the courageous senators described in this book, but I believe it is important to note.
During the Holocaust over 6 million Jews were killed in Europe. A lot of them were taken to concentration camps across Europe and forced to work. If they were not fit for labor they were executed at the camps with no chance for survival. While all of this was going on in the outside world, the Franks and the Van Daan's were living in a “Secret Annex” behind Otto Frank's old office building. There were a total of eight people, they are the following: Anne Frank, Margot Frank, Otto Frank, Edith Frank, Peter Van Daan, Hans Van Daan, and Petronilla Van Daan, and Mr. Dussel. They lived a quiet and small, but safe life.
Courage & Defiance is about World War Two in Denmark. On April 9, 1940, the government of Denmark had surrendered to the Nazis. The reason that the government surrendered was because that the army was very small and weak compared to the Germans. There are thirty-two characters in this novel, but I will name of the ones that sound the most important to me: Niels Skov, Jorgen Kieler, Thomas Sneum. These people spied and sabotage the Nazis in order to save their country.
