“We are taught to understand, correctly, that courage is not the absence of fear, but the capacity for action despite our fears.” – Sen John McCain
“I don’t mind a good fight. For reasons known only to God, I’ve had quite a few tough ones in my life. But I learned an important lesson along the way: In the end, it matters less that you can fight. What you fight for is the real test.” – Sen John McCain
When Sen John McCain passed away last week from brain cancer, our country lost a national treasure. There is simply no other way to put it. There are few men or women in our time who have made the impact that Sen McCain had on our country. Courage, compassion, respect, integrity – all of these are words that are often used when describing Sen McCain.
So if you will allow me, I would like to dedicate this leadership blog to John McCain, pay respects to the qualities that made him such a great leader, and offer parallels on how we can live our lives in the spirit John showed in his own.
