THERE ARE VARIOUS MOTIVATIONS FOR COURAGE
My cousin wrote from New York describing an incident that happened to her son Buck in NYC. A couple of weeks ago he was walking from the bus depot to his Dad’s apartment in upper Manhattan when he realized he was flanked by two young men. “Give me your wallet.” “No.” “This is a gun. Give me your wallet or I’ll shoot you.” “No.” “Hey, man. You don’t understand. We’re robbing you. Give me your wallet.” “No.” “Give me your wallet or I’ll knife you.” “No.” “Give me your wallet or we’ll beat you up.” By now the robber was whining. “No.” Buck had continued walking and after a while he noticed he was no longer accompanied. When he told me about it, I asked him, “Weren’t you scared?” “Of course. What else would I be?” “Why didn’t you give them your wallet?” “My learner’s permit’s in it.”
