I know I thought about honor already. I can’t remember now but I think I was wondering what it means to be honorable in this day and age.
My grandfather’s obituary calls him honorable and when I read it, a light bulb went off. “Ah ha!” I thought, “That is who is honorable.”
He was an honorable human and while I might not have thought to call him honorable while he lived, now he’s gone, there is almost no better word.
But is honored the same as honorable? If I were to win a bunch of awards, you could call me honored, but I’m not sure that would necessarily qualify me as honorable. Particularly if I cheated like hell to get those honors.
