Coward and Cowardice

It is in understanding these terms that we come to fully understand why our country is in the shape it is in and why we have ended up where we are. We need to each look into our own heart and ask ourselves where we fit in respect to these definitions. If a person is corruptable and is unwilling to take a stand against corruption, it is only because that person is a coward! Find out how to live a life that goes beyond self and is incorruptible.

One who shows ignoble fear in the face of danger or pain.

Ignoble fear in the face of danger or pain.

Cowardice describes a personality trait which is typically viewed as a negative characteristic and has been generally frowned upon within most, if not all global cultures, while courage - typically viewed as its direct opposite - is generally rewarded and encouraged.

It is difficult to define outside of specific social contexts. In general terms, it is the perceived failure to demonstrate sufficient bravery in the face of an adverse situation. Cowards are usually seen to have avoided or refused to engage in a confrontation or struggle which has been deemed good or righteous.

On a more mundane level, the label may be applied to those who are regarded as too frightened to defend their rights or those of others from aggressors in their lives.
