If it is important to know what bravery is, then it is also important to know what bravery is not.
To be brave is not equal to being a loud-mouth or a bully. I believe that courageous people posses a calmness and resolve of spirit. There is a sense in which they have made their decisions before situations arise. Bullies need to be the biggest, the best, the toughest, the smartest, the prettiest, the most wounded (yes, I do believe that woundedness has become a competitive art). Loud-mouths feel the need to say anything and everything that comes into their minds, whether it is true or not.
Perhaps there is a connection between bravery and wisdom. In knowing when to act and when to speak.
