Presidential Courage: Brave Leaders & How They Changed America 1789-1989 by Michael R. BeschlossPresidential Courage is about the difficult decisions made by eight presidents in the face of public opinion based on the principle of what is best for the nation and not political expediency. In Profiles of Courage JFK wrote about leaders that “sailed with the wind until the decisive moment when their conscience, and events, propelled them into the center of the storm. There comes a time when a man has to take a stand.” That is the essence of what this book covers for the following presidents: Washington and the Jay Treaty; J. Adams and halting pending war with France; Jackson facing plutocratic enemies; Lincoln and emancipation proclamation; T. Roosevelt and the coal miners strike; Truman and a Jewish home state; Kennedy and civil rights; and finally Reagan dealing with Gorbachev and nuclear weapons. Some leaders were slow to react even resisted at times but in the end did the right thing. A must read in light of the current president and his lack of moral leadership.

Is having a boyfriend better than being single? Well, a lot and we mean a lot of girls think so. These girls may be classified as being needy or codependent on males. But as we all know, having a steady boyfriend has its perks. Having a constant snuggle buddy whenever you get home from a long hard day of work is a real treat. You can always vent to your boyfriend too, unleash all that piled up crap that you need to get off your chest.
Please leave empty:. It doesn't matter because everyone thinks I already have a boyfriend and they never ask me out. I want him to be sweet, protective of me, smart and loving. I don't really want a boyfriend. Hotness - what else?
Being single for a certain amount of time has its benefits. I personally experienced the most growth and self-awareness during my years as a single girl, and while there were some painful and lonely moments, they all led me to a place where I could break through some of my walls and do some necessary inner work. We continue to live life in the same way and hope that it will somehow lead to different results. To solve a problem, you need to understand it. Neediness is a state of mind where you feel incomplete, or have an emotional void, and try to fill this empty space with a relationship or male validation. Conversely, a man will run far away from a woman who sees him as an opportunity to feel good about herself or fill some void.
Recently my best friend, who I've known since kindergarten, met someone — her first boyfriend ever. I'm happy for her, but it has made me realise how lonely I actually am. People around me think I'm heartless because I always have a stone face no matter what, but on the inside I feel happiness, pain and pleasure like any normal person. I think this lack of emotion on the outside probably makes people from the opposite sex not want to be with me because I'll never giggle like an idiot just to make a guy think he's funny. The only one who can "read" my emotions is my best friend.
