    Some people call this leadership or, leading by example.

      could easily be wrong when they assert this.

      Often it is better leadership to stand back and do more modest but more other-directed actions, than it is to seek the lead via inserting oneself into a place where there already are others fully capable and who deserve the chance toward righting the situation.  

      I'm deeply saddened by the loss of these folks, but there is something in the tone of the "sacrifice" and even in Zangas' blog that is a little unsettling I find. Not about him  individually, but built into the ethos of the endeavor.  I wonder if we should accept it at face value and continue to venerate it, or if it is something we all (collectively) should examine and question a bit.
