"Courage is being afraid but going on anyhow."

-Dan Rather

I have been reading a book called We Die Alone. by David Howarth published in 1955. It is a true story about courage which begins with an act of a coward. A story about a patriot in World War II. The sole survivor of a German ambush who survived for weeks out in the Norwegian winter. He showed courage for trying to secretly stuff to aid in the defence of Norway, then fighting the elements without anything to help. There is another story of courage in this book, the courage of the Norwegian people that helped him to safety. The things he endured and how people helped him is amazing.

I recommend this book if you can find it.


  1. There were so many people who did so much good during such a bad time. I spent a good 20 years reading about the Nazis and the good people that helped when they could. The human spirit, when it works for good, does wonders.

  2. Thanx for the heads up. rich

  3. I wish I had time to read I do enjoy a good book

  4. Ms "A", thank you for popping alerts are completely messed up...not a one in over two weeks now.  Brook looks taller!  And love the kittens...wish we could have some more. ;)  C.
