A Foolish Kind of Bravery?

It is better to die on your feet than to live on your knees.

-- Emiliano Zapata

Ah, the true champion of lost causes. IF you can not, by living, return to fight another day, with hopefully better odds...

IF, by dying right then, in that way, you can inspire others, perhaps.

Or, possibly, if you can take an awful lot of the enemy with you at the same time.

People training today's suicide bombers probably LOVE Emiliano Zapata, even if he didn't share their religion.
