I just read that the question to ask yourself about your own courage and character is these 2 questions. What would you have done if you were in Germany leading up to WW2 and starting seeing what was going on? The Jews being taken away and killed. Would you have done anything to speak up and attempt to stop it? Or another situation would be what would you have done if you were alive living in the South prior to the Civil War. Would you have spoke out or tried to stop slavery? I think the way a person answers the question tells a lot about your courage and character. How much are you willing to give up and cost yourself to do the right and moral thing? If you speak up or try to stop it could cost you everything up to and including you and your loved ones life. What would you do?
