Heroism, Bravery, and Glory

Insane World

The concepts “bravery” and “glory” seem outdated, appropriate to a different time. Perhaps that’s why the word “hero” can cause a tinge of embarrassment. When we think of bravery, we envision soldiers storming the beaches of Normandy in World War II, or explorers trying to find the source of the Nile. Heroism, traditionally defined, seems to require war, disaster, emergency, or uncharted territories.

Given that the traditional opportunities to display bravery have diminished in the modern world, we settle for poor proxies. Actors, such as the late John Wayne, engage in heroism from the safety of a movie set; athletes’ on-the-field bravery is limited to a couple of hours every week, scheduled around network advertising.
