According to the Vikings, there are many types of courage. There is courage on the battlefield. There is the courage to be ethical in the real world. There is the courage to be painfully honest with friends. There is the courage to stand up for your religious belief, as well as non-religious beliefs. But, the greatest courage of all is to “laugh while you die.” It is too easy to lay on your death bed feeling sorry for yourself and those loved ones at your side. It takes courage to reassure them with love and, most importantly, humor. After all, the future is all about them, not you.
