Now there seems to be a lot of disagreement as to what constitutes courage. People referred to Jenner online as an "it" and undeserving of such an award. Maybe they don't know that much about Arthur Ashe for whom the courage award is dedicated.
Arthur Ashe described heroism this way, " True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost."
I believe he would not have objected to this year's recipient of the award named in his honor.
