Metal of Honor. Honor Guard. Scouts Honor. Honor students, honor rolls and an honor society. There is even a place called Honor,
Michigan.

 

Barb and I watched the movie, “Rob Roy” last night. The film was generally inspired by elements of the life of a 17th-18th century Scot named Robert Roy MacGregor and his battles with feudal landowners in the Scottish Highlands. The distributors of the film, describe Rob Roy as a “riveting adventure of courage, love and uncompromising honor.” In one of the early scenes Rob Roy is asked by his young son, “What is honor?” His reply begs meditation. He said, as I remember the quote, “Honor is not something that a man can give you, or take from you. Honor is a gift you give to yourself”
