All the above, man or animal, have their place in history and in our hearts. But as the old country song said "Who's gonna fill their shoes, who's gonna stand that tall".
Courage-being scared to death but saddling up anyway. John Wayne
If you don't know where you're going, every road will get you there.
Pick your battles. Be sure they're small enough to win but big enough to matter.
“Don’t wave your phony patriotism in MY face! If you really love America, open your wallet and hire an American kid to build what you buy. Think of all our problems that might solve.” Doug Fraser (paraphrased) 1980
Real Americans buy American, though it may be too little too late now.
