Be it resolved that “greater love has no woman than this, that she lay down her life for her friends.”
I noticed in all the discussion over at this post that some guiding principles appeared to be lacking. I think the above sentiment is a beautiful one. Of course, we can never force a woman to lay down her life for her friends, but do we aspire to this value that it might be honourable to do so? And who are our “friends”? What about losing your life for your enemies? More or less honourable?
I would think it would be a good way to go, though, if I could show myself to be so courageous and so loving that I died for someone else to live. But perhaps that’s my melodramatic side talking. And ever so easy to say in the theoretical.
So much to discuss, so little time.by
