The Very Definition

He did his duty.

He did his best.

He gave more.

He took less.

His actions spoke volumes.

His words carried weight.

He was educated.

He was considerate.

He did right, even if no one else would have known differently.

He opposed wrong, even if it cost him just the same.

He had purpose.

He had poise.

And while he would have protested mightily, we should recognize him for what he was.

He was a gentleman.

And we should endeavor to be more like him.
