To Live For A reason ! / Sacrifice to save.


Reading the biographies of great innovators is most fulfilling,inspiring,gratifying and motivating.Not only for the lessons a person can learn from them but for the depth of their conviction ,commitment and compassion to serve humanity without partiality.This is a true story about president Abraham Lincoln during the civil war.He had called for one of the soldiers under his command who had an excellent reputation .Lincoln needed the soldier to deliver a message to another battalion that was dangerously on the other side of the enemy.If both battalion could be coordinated to attack the opposition at the same time,their position would become a strategic advantage. When the young soldier arrived without disclosing the nature of the mission ,Lincoln explained that he had a very dangerous mission and asked the soldier if he would be willing to take such a commission.The soldier said.” I am willing to die for our cause.” Lincoln replied,” I have 25 thousand men who are willing to die for the cause,what I need is one who is willing to live for it.”
(( To sacrifice oneself is to die to save the lives of others.Sacrifice is also to save oneself to help the others to live.Jalal Michael Sabbagh.http://gravatar.com?jmsabbagh86@gmail.com ))
