Humility is a virtue. It is the quality of keeping one’s self under control. A person who possesses this quality is humble and meek. A humble person is the master of himself. Courtesy and humility are two very important things in this world. Giving one respect never makes you small rather increases the level of respect that others have for you. President Barack Obama has actually proved this with his act of humility.
President Barack Obama forgot to salute this marine back when he boarded the helicopter. No one really knew if he had actually forgotten to salute back, or he just ignored him on purpose. The video just showed that he had apparently ignored the marine. But was that true? Well, no!
Majority of Americans feel discomfort about President Barack Obama having no military experience. And this incident flared that fact which was no way good for hi image. But this video shows what he had actually done before committing that mistake. He actually immediately, shamefullyreturned back down to shake his hands with the marine. His gesture towards the marine was actually heartwarming.
