Man flees Islamic terrorists with pint of beer in his hand.
At least England has some leadership and inspiration.
Here's some dialogue from the play _The Devil's Disciple_ by George Bernard Shaw:
Anthony Anderson: It is in the hour of trial that a man finds his true profession.
Richard Dudgeon: I have behaved like a fool.
Judith Anderson: Like a hero.
Richard Dudgeon: Much the same thing, perhaps.
"London terror attack: Martial arts expert stabbed while trying to protect bouncer
says he thought: 'This isn't happening on my watch':
'Don’t know whether it was stupid or noble,' Geoff Ho, who cannot speak after being stabbed in the neck, writes."
Geoff Ho, a business editor at the 'Sunday Express' newspaper, intervened to protect a man who was attacked.
Ho (of Chinese heritage), who has training in martial arts, then apparently found himself
fighting for his life against up to three terrorists armed with knives. He was stabbed in the throat.
His intervention might have diverted the terrorists long enough to save other people's lives.
Yet Ho was self-deprecating about his actions, wondering if he had acted out of bravery or stupidity.
Isabelle Oderberg, a journalist who's his close friend, said that she was not surprised by what
Ho did because "he would have stood up and been counted because he's just that type of person."
Will Jet Li make a cameo appearance playing Geoff Ho in a film adaptation of this event?
