Real Moral Courage
Dietrich Bonhoeffer was really brave, and he paid the ultimate price for his convictions. Winston Churchill had moral clarity and beyond that, a prescient vision of what later did actually come to pass. Ronald Wilson Reagan stood up for freedom and backed down the expansionist intentions of the Soviet Union. Margaret Thatcher had many of the same gifts. I think Rick Santorum possesses the same traits as the aforementioned heroes. Other potential leaders may emerge with the wisdom and courage so badly needed today. Let us hope we are discerning enough to recognize and elect such leaders.
