It is a widely held but grievously
mistaken belief that civil courage
finds exercise only in the context
of world-shaking events. To the
contrary, its most arduous exercise
is often in those small contexts
in which the challenge is to
overcome the fears induced by petty
concerns over career, over our
relationships to those who appear
to power over us, over whatever may
disturb the tranquility of our
mundane existence.
