Thomas More

There has always been a place in my heart for Thomas More. Decision to defend something intangible is a trial within itself. Standing up to an authority when you know their decision could take your position, your life.
More is the Saint of Lawyers, but I wonder how many lawyers these days would do as he did. Would they really follow the example and stand up even if it were their own life that they would give?
What is the example for me?

Not nearly as dramatic as giving his life... but one reason my dh joined the Army as a JAG (in addition to patriotism) was that he would not have to do divorces..... and for that he's thankful

Interesting thought Renee. I agree that divorce is the worst thing to hit society!
