Love notes to the English language
I doubt that they did it for glory but because it was the right thing to do. Mark Twain said "Always do right. This will gratify some people and astonish the rest." I try to live by that. And if someone saves my life, I'm sure as hell not asking/thinking about what their sexual, religious, or political preferences are but what I can do in return.If more people did right without worrying what others think or a pat on the head, the world would be a better place. Just my take. Then again, I'm mostly considered weird in this wicked world.
I agree! My friend Charles from Norway also said that their heroism was celebrated, but it's not the Norwegian way to mention their sexual preference because it's considered a norm there. They are light years ahead of us in this respect, that's for sure. He also said he disagreed with one of the commenters that the Labor Party is "anti-Jew." He said that Israel has fallen into disfavor because of their abuse of power in the Middle East."
