I will be the same person when I die as I am today.
If I was in a situation like the passengers of flight 93 on September 11, 2001, would I act courageously? Would I stand up and fight? I can answer those questions by asking them of myself today.
Do I act courageously? Do I move forward in spite of fear? Do I stand beside those who cannot stand for themselves? Does love motivate me to do more than what is seemingly possible?
If the answers are 'yes,' then I can be assured of what my final moments would be like. My last moments will be marked by love and courage.
If you want to die like a hero, live like one.
