         Courage is the ability to face danger or any challenging situation. We are living a life way better than the ancient world thousands of years ago. We have a better health care system, infrastructure, and better form of government where laws provide order not only within the country but also between countries. In the old world, countries face non-stop threat from neighboring countries where invasion normally means citizens will be sold to the invading countries. Therefore, the only option is to learn the habit of facing one’s fears.
