    It has been my experience that when in the grip of sweaty palmed,mouth so dry you are unable to produce saliva,heartbeat about to burst your chest fear;the adrenaline pumping through your body produces the courage to take flight or fight.It is an uncontrollable and automatic reaction.

    I have seen a few very courageous acts and what is common to all of them is that those involved always say the same thing...."I did not think about it,I just did what I had to do."

    I believe the quote informs that if it's a matter of life or death, courage will overpower fear.
