A Coward Died A Thousand Times, A Brave Man, only once!

You are a coward when you even seem to have backed down from a thing you openly set out to do
~ Mark Twain

So, true to Twain's, one man is indeed a coward by retiring early when his 'company' is in complete disarray.

Moral excellence comes about as a result of habit. We become just by doing just acts, temperate by doing temperate acts, brave by doing brave acts” ~ Aristotle

Today, tens of thousands of Italians chanting "resign, resign" marched through Rome yesterday demanding that Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, who they accused of corruption, step down. So I read in MI.

"The crowd, which police estimated at 90,000 but organisers said was larger, included actors and writers, among them Nobel Literature laureate Dario Fo.

"This a day of democracy, a day that shows that the country can come together to build an alternative and most of all to tell Berlusconi to go," said Antonio di Pietro, an ex-anti-graft magistrate who heads the opposition Italy of Values party.

"There are people from all over the country here, and even from abroad with one message: Berlusconi has to go!. Berlusconi has to be treated like every other citizen. He has to face trial," di Pietro said"

Well, this is why I have a dream of an Italian or someone who could cook Italian food to spend my life with;) They have guts!
