The High Cost of Honor and Greatness

The High Cost of Honor and Greatness

Because it is The Pink Flamingo’s birthday, I am going to indulge myself. The other night I was watching Tombstone. (Yea, this is yet another “Why I love Wyatt Earp…”). Even having watched the movie so many times, something struck me that I’d not noticed.

The perfect definition of honor:

When a person of honor does something that requires personal strength and character, something difficult that the average person would shrink from doing, that person is usually criticized. Those of lesser character would like nothing better than to swoop in and destroy. The most perfect example of this The Pink Flamingo knows is the life of Wyatt Earp.

Wyatt Earp, 1923Wyatt Earp basically gave up his entire future to do what was right. This 1923 photo is my favorite. It shows a man, brave, courageous, and bold – one unafraid, unflinching, and was willing to face the consequences.

Wyatt Earp and George W. Bush

Today is the 128th Anniversary of the Shootout at the OK Corral. After 30 seconds of shooting, three men – Billy Clanton, Frank & Tom McLaury were either dead or dying. Ike Clanton had fled, and three others – Virgil & Morgan Earp and Doc Holliday were injured. Only Wyatt Earp was uninjured. Thus was born legend and the American character was fully defined.

We are a nation of Wyatt Earps. “It all ends now!” Stand up and fight for what is right no matter what the personal cost. We see it again and again in the history of this country. Fact is, once upon a time a Wyatt Earp clone resided in the Oval Office.

Right is right and wrong is wrong. A President of the United States of America should know the difference and should know how to lead. Actions speak louder than words read from a teleprompter.

We should all have the courage of a Wyatt Earp or a George W. Bush.
