Honour: Regard with Great Respect
We do things every day to honour other people. We wear our team’s jersey on game days. We get tattoos. We run, walk or stroll. We honour achievements by giving out awards. We honour family traditions.
Acts of honour can be big or small – sometimes it’s the little things like honouring your grandma who’s passed on by continuing to bake her chocolate chip cookie recipe. Other times it’s quietly honouring someone you respect for maintaining their integrity and continuing to live life fully in spite of the adversity they’ve faced. At Spinal Cord Injury Ontario, we see this every day.
After sustaining a spinal cord injury, we see people doing the things they love and staying true to themselves, even though life’s day-to-day circumstances may have changed. They are living honourably. We also see family members honour their loved ones with spinal cord injuries by helping them live as independently as possible.
