“We’re O.K. down here.”

Stephen Crane wrote a book about it. The Red Badge of Courage. What is courage? What is cowardice? He doesn't offer an answer, just an observation.

Don't ask the hero in this New York Times story. He didn't have a choice; it's just something in the genes. Action/reaction.

And don't think he received applause from his wife when he got home. More likely a bop on the head.
