The word for today is Honor!
When I think about honor I think about a ceremony where someone gets recognized for his loyal, creative and courageous service.
I think about applauses, medals and several speeches to honor the person worth of this recognition.
This is good but there is more.
For me honor is a daily attitude of people of integrity who in spite of the fact that they are recognized or not, , do the right things with discipline and faithfulness.
They do it not for recognition but because they are passionate about the principles that lease their life, regardless of their personal recognition.
When a few years back Italian music writer Ennio Morricone ( author of all the spaghetti western movies like the good, the bad and the ugly and many more ) received the academy award in LA FOR HIS CAREER , he said:
I want to dedicate this Oscar to the many musicians who deserve it but will never get it!
That’s it! Honor is not a recognition but a daily attitude displayed by the real heroes of everyday life.
To sum it up, honor is not what others say and show you but WHAT YOU KNOW YOU REALLY ARE!
Are you a real hero worth of honor or someone looking for honor to become a hero?
May this question sink down strong in our daily actions.
