"We are taught to understand, correctly, that courage is not the absence of fear but the capacity for action despite our fears," John McCain reminds us in this testimony to how personal valor can inform both everyday actions and extraordinary feats. A co-winner of the Profiles in Courage Award, McCain also salutes some of his personal heroes, including civil rights legend John Lewis, Nobel Peace Prize laureate Aung San Suu Kyi, Hungarian poet and Resistance fighter Hannah Senesh; and Sgt. Roy Benavidez, who ignored his own well-being to rescue eight of his men from an ambush in the Vietnam jungle.
