Last night I watched "The Last Samurai." There was one single running theme: Honor. What IS Honor? What is it? WHAT IS IT? The question burns me, makes me twitch. I have heard a great many explanations. An army General of many years says that honor is "a feeling." The Navy honor code says simply, "do not lie, cheat, or steal." Others would say that you can't pidgeonhole honor, it can only be taught by example. I'll accept that in principle, but what examples then? WAR! Examples of honor are depicted with WAR. The willingness to fight and die for.. for what? The subject seems rather arbitrary. Fighting and dying for something is apparently honorable. It doesn't really matter what it is. Now I have felt the need to exhibit honor, and I feel that I have done so at many times throughout my life, but never in doing harm. To all those who would believe otherwise, know this: There is no honor in war, neither for those who make it, nor for those who fight it.
